"Dinghy Reflections, Mattapoisett"
16" x 20" - Transparent Watercolor
Mattapoisett was named by Native Indians to mean Land of Rest. It directly faces Buzzards Bay offering many maritime painting sites. On a quiet evening as the sun slowly descends toward the horizon, brilliant reflections are seen coming from the front-lit dinghy and stone wall. One tries to capture the essence and freshness of the scene with the first paint washes avoiding alterations.
