David Dunlop Fog Painting at Prouts Neck
Last Fall David and his producing partner Connie Simmons were filming several programs at Prout’s Neck, ME, the last home of Winslow Homer, for our new DVD, Painting the Sea. It was the last day of our trip, Connie had packed away our second camera, and we were walking back to the car to leave. We spotted this very evocative place on the rocks in front of Winslow Homer’s studio. David really wanted to try to paint a quick oil sketch to catch the mood, but they were very nervous because it was really too foggy and wet to shoot and we only had one camera. But – as always – David prevailed and we shot this very quick oil sketch. It really was too foggy and wet, we didn’t have the camera for close-ups as we usually do, but we shot it anyway for fun! So please forgive the blur on the camera lens – we ran out of there as soon as David finished to protect our camera – and we should have left sooner!
