Yesterday, Cindy Stevens and I met up with over a dozen other Madison Art Society artists at Harkness Park in Waterford, CT.
What an amazing place! I had never been there before and I was overwhelmed with the beauty and variety of gorgeous vignettes. There was a Mansion, Carriage House, Carriage House Gardens, at least three formal gardens with sculpture and a pagoda, a lavender/ garden with iron gates and when you turn around you get an ocean view, marshes and beaches.... simply amazing. I was to say the least overwhelmed so I decided to take lots of photos and sketch for most of the day. After reviewing my photos this morning I knew I had to paint one scene so I decide on this beach scape. There were a few people relaxing in sand chairs and a couple were fishing for bass. The seagulls scurried along the water's edge.
