TRURO COTTAGES 2 6x9
One late afternoon last summer,after dropping some of my paintings off for The Outer Cape Art Auction, I was leaving P-town when I saw a woman with a ball cap on painting on the side of Route 6. I'd had seen her on her web site so I was pretty sure it was Mary. I stopped my car in the shoulder of Route 6, and walked back towards her, with cars whizzing by, I walked up to her and said,"you must be Mary".I told her I have been trying to catch up to her for quite a while.I talked to her a while and asked if she had any time for some instruction. She responded, how about Sunday in Truro for some loose lessons?
I showed up on Sunday at High Head Rd. and Rt. 6 in Truro. There were 2 other women and me. Mary gave me a putty knife to paint with.If you paint with a putty knife you will be loose.
I have painted that cottage scene many times, many different ways. I liked the putty knife the best. I painted this one from a photo and used a pallet knife.
I got to paint a few more times with Mary , she's a very good teacher,and look forward to painting with her again and taking a work shop or 2 with her.
