I have just spend three magnificent days up in these mountains doing plein air painting with wonderful friends, our third mini retreat .
Staying at the  beautiful Sunset Hill at Sugar Hill. 
The weather was great just enough snow to make this place magical. I mostly painted in watercolor , the previous years I had painted this scene in oil and pastel.
this painting is 11x14  and it is available .
 email me if you are interested

Sketch on the day I went and sketched the Lighthouse, it was a beautiful day with some nice breaking waves, and the best way to capture this was a quick sketch of a combination of watercolor and  gouache . In my sketchbook !

Nubble Lighthouse

I am fortunate to live in a beautiful area of New England, an hour and half drive North East  and I am at the beach in Maine, an hour drive North ,I am in Beautiful mountains of New Hampshire . So when a nice sunny day is coming before a storm, I like to get in a car for a drive and call it Winter therapy.
Right now, I am enjoying just sketching in my new sketch book , using gouache and ink.
I have painted this light house many times and never get tired of it .
