We now have an official name- the Barnstable Plein Air Painters! We had our second painting adventure on Monday May 14 at Mayflower Beach in Dennis. I had never been to this location. It's nice to take advantage of the free parking before the official season sets in and beach stickers are required. The weather was a bit iffy but it never rained and the clouds and atmospheric effects were spectacular. I was able to do 3 small paintings over the course of the morning. I loved the challenge of capturing the ethereal effects of the clouds and mist. Later the sun came out and it was completely changed. What a difference a few hours makes! We had a great critique, made new friends and shared ideas and tips. What an amazing morning!
