Cold and windy and a little rainy at Port McNeill today. It was a busy day today, getting perishables aboard and stowed for our next piece of water. I don't know how soon we'll be at a place with a decent market, so I bought a lot of nice produce today, among other things. Peppers and carrots, onions and apples. Even some cherries. And, after dinner, it finally stopped raining long enough for me to sit on the sundeck and paint.
After I finish a painting, I make a few notes in my painting journal. In this painting, I was especially trying to make the sky and water look and feel like the cool, cloudy evening. It's only 51 degrees!
Before we left home, I cut sheets of acetate that exactly fit into my portfolio. As I finish paintings, I number them and tape them to the acetate. Even if I paint enough to use up all of the paper I brought, I think that I will have enough acetate to protect the paintings.
