A little afternoon plein air down by Cape May Harbor.
I got out and painted so that's a plus.
But I couldnt really make my paintings work.
In the first I planned to paint the big area of marsh grass by just keeping it all wet ... It got confused- looking but I still think that's a valid strategy.
In the second I planned to paint a lot of undefined shapes to convey all the stuff in the boatyard, but it got too choppy. I think I could make it better by connecting the shapes, painting a lot of it as one shape, changing colors, but without the hard edges.
The sketchbook page--to me the most successful painting I did today--took about 10 minutes!
