Florida Cottage Landscape Pastel Painting by Poucher

"Seaside Pink"
Soft pastel on Wallis 6x6"
Gulfport, FL is our new winter home. A small sleepy village with old Florida style the brick streets lead to colorful, little cottages that should provide plenty of inspiration for a new series of work this season. Though with the Boca Ciega bay just a block away I'm sure that there will still be some seascapes in my future here.

Little Sketch, To the Dune Shack, Pastel & Watercolor

"To the Dune Shack"
Pastel on Fabiano Watercolor paper 5x7"

Just a little sketch today of the path through the high dunes toward the dune shacks. I'm always grateful for these days when the town is buzzing with tourists to be able to get out in the National Seashore for some solitude.

Harbormaster's Shack Pamet Harbor Pastel Painting

"Harbormaster's Shack"
Soft pastel on Colourfix paper 8x8"

When Provincetown gets busy in the summer months, we often pack a picnic or grab a pizza and  park our VW camper at Pamet Harbor to watch the sunset. And once the sun is down and the lights come on this little harbor is a peaceful pleasure.

Reflected Red Fishing Boat Art by Poucher

"Reflected Boat"
Soft pastel on Colourfix paper 8x16"

A Provincetown fishing boat is reflected in the calm water in Provincetown harbor on Cape Cod. This series of 8x16" pastel paintings is for my June show at Julie Heller East in Provincetown. The show coincides with Provincetown's Portuguese Festival and Blessing of the Fleet so I have included many of the town's working fishing boats in this exhibit.

Two Little Boats Together Seascape Painting by Poucher

"Two Little Boats Together"
Soft pastel on Wallis Museum Paper 9x12"

I never tire of pasteling these 2 Wellfleet dinghies. I cleaned them up a bit this time...they could use a paint job.
I worked in reverse of my usual seascape method with this one. I used a cool toned underpainting with warmer colors on top.
