New: “Portside (study)”
I discovered this abandoned home decades ago. It sits on Route 28 in Harwich, MA. Painted it many times…from different angles, in different light. I was recently out scouting for Cape scenes, and drove past this place. The blast of warm white of the early morning sun on the run-down clapboards gave the house a seemingly new life. The first piece I did of this was a straight on view one would if on the side lawn. This was from the left side…overgrown with an old cedar, vines and weeds…but resurrected by painting out most of that unneeded vegetation. This is a composition and color study for a planned larger canvas.
