On the Easel.... Maine coast pines...

I got a good start on this scene today.  However, this is an oil; and, as usual with oil, I ended up with paint all over myself and on just about every space within 20 feet of my easel.  I also went through 13 paint brushes for some reason, so the sink was also a mess. 
The good part - oil is SO lovely for blending.
This scene is from a photo I took on a recent trip to mid-coast Maine. When I saw this small group of lonely pines on a tiny peninsula, I liked how the sand and water formed interesting lines and shapes to lead the eyes of the viewer around this rocky little place.
