Road to Assateague

Road to Assateague sketches - May 2008

Right after Paint Snow Hill weekend, I found myself driving around the Ocean City and Berlin, Maryland, area on the lookout for more good plein air painting sites. One of my favorite places is along Route 611 on the way to Assateague Island. Across from Assateague Market a row of very sculptural trees stands in a line and follows the curve of the road around. In the springtime their new leaves are nearly fluorescent green. I simply had to pull off the road and start sketching, standing in a ditch, with cars roaring past me. When I finish the painting it will all be worth it. :)
