"Dune-Dancers", pastel, Tatiana Myers.
Last week I spent painting at Cape Cod with group of pastel painters
mentored by Richard McKinley.
It was a time before the tourist season is starting, so we had very little interruption
by whoever was showing at our painting sites... What were beautiful.
This is one of the painting what I did on location.
Most of us were staying right on the parking lot of one of local beaches.
We were surrounded by water, dunes, blooming Beach Plum bushes
and some not-invited personalities what were trying to
hand out some of brochures of religious nature...
(We all know well those polite guys who usually working in small groups of 2 or 3,
always neatly dressed and just a bit too sweet)
Soon their brave troopers gave up on us and move away to some place other....
We were continuing working on our paintings and enjoyed the scenery.
Richard did his demo later in a day and ironically we ended up
painting the same subject, what was a group of pine trees on a top of the dunes.
After I finished working on my painting I decided not to do another,
but went around with my camera hunting for more beautiful views.
Now as I'm back home it will be more paintings coming.
