Played with this design of Malibu Moo’s, a location across from Clark Park in Fish Creek. The painting which I had attempted earlierĀ  in the day had not gone well. It was a nice to get this done. While I painted, I noticed my wife chatting with some folks near the harbor. Did not surprise me to find out that they were teachers. Anyway, it kept my wife busy long enough to allow me sufficient time to finish this painting.

After lunch, we made a couple quick stops and then up to Ephraim to get a painting of Wilsons. Due to time constraint, I neglected to include people (which are ALWAYS around this establishment). Oh well, maybe next time.

Peninsula Workshop Day 4

July 29, 2012

Plein Air June 30 – Wilson’s; Oil on Canvas Panel 6″ x 8″

Final day of the workshop. We met at a public park in Ephraim. The instructor did a demonstration painting then we took some time to paint. I couldn’t resist doing a painting of the restaurant across the road. A bit on an institution in this town. It gets very busy in the early evening as vacationers buy ice cream to enjoy as they view the sunset over the bay. Might be a bit cliche but I painted it any way.
