DRY-DOCKED
An Original Plein Air
Oil Painting
by Claire Beadon Carnell


'Dry-Docked'
Oil Plein Air
Wellfleet Harbour, Wellfleet, Cape Cod, MA
8 x 8

I was looking for something to paint while at the Harbour
in Wellfleet, and when I leaned over the rail of the
pier I saw this peach and blue rowboat pulled up out
of the water.  I really liked the design elements of the
 scene, especially with the cast shadow created by the boat.  
Ralph Hocker (one of the artists who helped
to organize our painting trip to Cape Cod) told me there used to be 
five or six of these rowboats - all the same color, but
apparently this is the only one left.  Sure was glad I found it.
If you would like to see more of my work,
please visit my website or my blog. If you are
interested in purchasing any of my paintings you see
here on this blog, please contact me.

Hi Claire,
Je suis très heureuse de vous retrouver aujourd'hui après ces longues semaines d'absence.
Je suis très heureuse de découvrir de nouvelles oeuvres toutes aussi merveilleuses les unes que les autres.
Je vois que vous vous trouviez à Cape Cod. Certaines de mes toiles se trouvent exposées à la Blueheron Gallery à Cap Cod.
Gros bisous à vous. Demain je fais mon retour sur mon blog! enfin!

I really love your point of view and was not surprised to read that you saw this leaning over a rail. Lovely work, Claire!

I can see the flow of the water in this one, very different than water would be further from shore. Good job!

I love paintings that are unique, and this one is just that. All of your Cape Cod paintings are wonderful. You are a master of plein aire painting.

Martine, je tiens j'avais su que vous aviez à la Galerie Blue Heron à Cape Cod - je l'aurais fait en sorte que je suis allé là pour le voir! Il n'ya rien de tel que de voir le bel art de quelqu'un dans la vraie vie!

Thank you, Sherry - it is amazing what you will encounter when you just take the time to look around! I just loved this little boat, and had so much fun painting it.

Thank you, Sunny - I liked that there was a little bit of the water in the design, and really appreciate your comments!

Thank you, Pat - I enjoyed doing this, and loved that it was a bit different than the other landscapes that I did.
