"Dune-Dancers." Pastel, Plein Air.

 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.


  1. So beautiful, Tatiana! What a fabulous trip this must have been! I always love seeing the sea...

  2. It was very good trip indeed... Painting, learning, spending time with friends and enjoying surrounding us beauty.... I loved all about it. Planning to go back at the end of summer, if things will work out for us with Jim.
