I had the chance to spend some more time on my favorite island, Monhegan, where artists often come to paint. I asked each painter I saw if I could photograph their palette. It is an easy question to ask because painters are generally not self-conscious of their palette (I think that is what makes them so wonderful) and I don't feel like I am asking to steal their painterly intellectual property. Pretty soon word got around the island and when I would walk up to painters they would say, "I was waiting for you to ask!" Here are some of the new images.
Here is the painting being made from this palette - sometimes I sneak in a picture of the painting itself!
And again, a peek at the painting.
All cleaned up, but still beautiful!
Not much room!
On of my favorites. Very classic.
Another sneak peek.
Recognize this one? I photographed it earlier in the week and it appears above.
And don't forget a book of my palette pictures can be yours by ordering HERE on Blurb.com.
