I went to Lincoln City to take part in an Arts festival, which has a Quick Draw Paint out. I did this last year, and I had some ideas I wanted to try out this time around. I set up in the same spot I did last time, but with a bigger canvas.

I wanted to see if I could get an 11 X 14 panel done in two hours, and what you see here is the result.

Here's the set up:

Overcast days are the best for painting, so many colours and textures to tackle. This is very well done, I esp. like the foreground and the textures in the wood as well as the furious, growling sky.

I'm originally from Lincoln in the UK, we don't have a bay but oh boy do we have those skies!

Hi Caroline,

Thank you for the thoughtful comment. I grew up in New Mexico, land of amazing clouds-- especially during the monsoon season in the summer.

Love a gray day. Atmosphere and color. Nice.

Thanks Mary-- the next day was completely different-- sunny and bright. Go figure.
