"CHATHAM LIGHT HOUSE, CAPE COD" An Original Pastel Painting by Clare Klaum


Day 3 in Cape Cod.  Painting the Light House was challenging with the roof angles of the house.  We didn't think we would be able to stay to paint because the parking signs indicated we could only park for one half hour. So, I parked and sat behind my car and painted across the street from the Light House.  No one ever asked me to move, and several people came by to observe and chat.  Only once did I have a problem when a tour bus pulled in front of me and stayed there for a half an hour.  I just had to paint by memory at that point.  It was a beautiful sunny day and great for light and shadows.
