Dering Harbor View

On Wednesday my PALS plein air group went to Shelter Island to paint. Most of us had never been there before so we spent a while checking out spots before deciding to paint at Dering Harbor. I couldn't decide between the houses or the sailboat, so I did both. This is 5 x 7.


  1. Glad you put the sailboat in..I love the color of it..makes a beautiful painting!! I've never been to Shelter Island..I've heard it has wonderful restaurants...

  2. Joan - this looks like a wonderful place to the old houses with the porches - it is a place I would like to see. Thanks for sharing.

  3. The type of view that has always had me longing to live up in Maine along the coast. A gorgeous spot you chose, Joan, and you painted it beautifully. Are you in a boat yourself or is this a small inlet area and you are on the grass?

  4. Hilda - Thanks. It was fun but most restaurants were either closed for the season, or only open on weekends right now.

    Debbie - Thank you. I'd like to paint some of the quaint houses.

    Sherry - Thank you. It did remind me of Maine. I was sitting on the grass by a dock on the other side of the harbor.
