This is 'grass island" a quaint cottage, long deserted, sitting at the mouth of our harbor on Long Island Sound - our town was established in 1639 which makes it only 3 years younger than the first new england settlement. There are lots of old homes and even a light house off shore but I chose this scene for EDM #41 - I can sit comfortably in my car at the dock with this view of the grass island cottage. It s a gorgeous calm day and quite pleasant to sit and sketch. Once home I worked in some watercolor trying not to overwork the piece. ( as I always seem to do)
First sketched in my journal with pencil then wc wash.
