Drowned Lane off Bucholtz Road

An 8"x10" oil sketch I did when Marina and I went out painting a few weeks ago.  It was a beautiful spring evening with pollywogs swimming at our feet.  I wanted to reproduce as closely as I could the warm colour of the sand on the lane.


  1. Mary,
    I love the brushstroke and bright colors in this one. I'm off the Greenville Arms tomorrow for 6 days of painting at the self directed retreat. Was thinking of you and Marina. I've used that dollar store coffee cup in several paintings!

    1. Dawn, Thanks for the nice comment. I am so glad you are going to the Inn to paint for a week. What a wonderful time you will have. Marina is hosting Carol Marine at a workshop in Toronto in August that we will be attending-fun! So sorry to hear about your Dad. You will miss him so much. Love to you, Mary
