Cape Cod Dunes, Truro, Mass (en plein air)
It's been raining and overcasty every day since I've been here, I really can't remember rain this bad in New England in my lifetime. This has put a damper on my plein air painting but I used the time to visit art galleries and introduce myself to a lot of gallery owners. There is so much talent on the cape, very inspiring. I've been taking a lot of pictures to do some studio paintings later, They will likely be foggy and moody imagery as a result of the conditions.
I did manage to do a quick study on the dunes in Truro. the rain was off and on, clouds were spotty and the sun would peek and hide every few minutes. the constantly changing light, mosquitos and gnatts made for a challenging painting study. It's a beatiful place here, even with the rain, I can understand why so many artist make there way here to paint.
