Wainscott Trees

Purchase Information

I am taking a plein aire landscape class with artist Ben Fenske through Sag Harbor Fine Arts Center. Here's today's effort. It was a very hazy day, and I was looking into the sun. So, as Ben pointed out in his demo before we got started, I could expect the sky to be the lightest value in my painting and the vertical planes (the trees) to be in shadow. It was incredibly helpful to be armed with this information before heading out into the field to try and "see" it/ "find" it for myself.


  1. Nice piece Maryann. Lovely soft color and brush work. Hope you enjoy and learn a lot in the rest of the work shop!

  2. I've always admired your lovely still life arrangements and flowers, Maryann... but this plein air study is especially lovely. Beautiful!
