Plein air at the Maritime Museum, May 7th, 8" x 6 1/2" Pastel painted on Wallis Pro

This is a place I like to go to with a local sketch group called the Patchogue Sketch Club.  I join them in the summer months to go plein air painting.  The local Maritime Marina is a great place to sketch or do plein air.  It is close by and beautiful and I love being by the water. 

I painted this using just Ludwig pastels, and I stuck to more muted tones.  It was a gray evening, not much light to speak of, but the soft colors were beautiful.  Nothing dramatic, but that soft light is dreamy and beautiful.
