Last week Sunday while in Petoskey, MI, my artists friends and I decided to spend the day painting in Harbor Springs. Harbor Springs in a quaint town with only five or six blocks of shops, restaurants and art galleries. There is plenty of subject matter. We were excited about the beautiful harbor with the sailboats so that is where we set up our easels. The first half hour was sunny, then it clouded up with fog. The weather changed so frequently, from calm to windy, from warm to chilly, sunny to foggy, that it was hard to establish values and color in the painting. Almost gave up but I loved that red boat and so I quickly painted in the foreground water and bouy and liked the results.
