Odiorne Point

I’ve been going to Odiorne State Park since grade school. With its science center and tide pools the park is perfect for educational purposes. It is also great for unplanned day trips. Which is how my girlfriend and I found ourselves at the park last weekend. We woke up, saw it was nice out, grabbed our watercolors, and headed off to the coast.


There are things I like about this painting. The ocean, the black rocks, and my girlfriend’s shirt. But there are plenty of things I’m unhappy with. Chief of them being my execution of the bench and its shadows. Something went wrong there. I also don’t particularly like the saturated green bush in the middle. But for a two hour, 9″x12″ painting, it’s all right.
