Studying the View (Inside the Provincetown Library)

One of the things I miss during this time of staying at home quarantining is visiting the library. I miss our local library so much, The Walpole Public Library. They just recently began delivering books to your home and of course I immediately started taking advantage of it. But nothing beats visiting in person so I look forward to when I can go back.
One of my other favorite libraries is the Provincetown Library on Commercial Street at the tip of Cape Cod. I recommend a visit to anyone who in in Provincetown. Inside this library there is a replicate of a ship which takes up a whole floor. It's amazing. Also the views from inside are incredible. One of the last times we visited, I saw this light coming inside and creating interesting shadows on the floor and knew I would paint it some day. I don't normally paint interiors but I really enjoyed this so I hope to do some more.
I was deliberately trying to be looser with my painting technique and layering of colors which I hope you can see from these close up detail images.
