Pemaquid rocks
Pastel 5x7 , copyrighted 2010
Nita Leger Casey
Back home after a wonderful three days in Maine at the yearly Pemaquid retreat for the Pastel Painters of Maine . This is a small painting done there on location ,the scenery of the coast is just beautiful beach roses everywhere ,Lupines in all the fields .
When you go on a mini retreat with other artists , you really have a great time ,we all learn from each other about different painting material and techniques ,the camaraderie is great ,we paint all day then share a great meal at the small restaurant on the edge of the ocean ,the lobsters are being caught right there , the sound of the light horn and crashing waves ,what more could you ask?
The first night I had the honor of doing the critique , a task with everyone being so good .
the second day we also had a very accomplished Pastel painter , Claudette Gamanche give us a demo and a talk about our passion .all in all it was great!
This painting is available , email me if you are interested
