The Great Sippewissett Marsh section of the Shining Sea Bikeway in Falmouth is one of the most beautiful stretches over the 11 mile trail. The views are expansive and breathtaking. I have walked it many times, but yesterday, for the first time, I painted there along side the trail. I painted in the morning because I wanted the sun to be behind me. I used my trusty BestBrella umbrella to shade my paper from the sun and then went to it. Here's my painting, followed by a photo of the marsh as I saw it from where I was standing at my easel.. If I had painted from the photo, I would have never seen the color I observed while on site. Being out there really does make a difference!
