"WINDMILL ON A WINDY DAY" (CAPE COD) Original Pastel Painting by Clare Klaum


Day 6 plein air painting in Cape Cod.  It was very windy that day and I took shelter tucked  in front of a bank of  Catamarans.  This windmill must have been decorative because it was not turning in the wind.  The water was very choppy and the sky changed so many times, I chose to paint it when it was not as dark.  By the time I was finished there must have been 20 seagulls on the little island but I decided that three were plenty.
