On this grey mid-January day, it was about forty degrees and very windy. I was dressed for ten below, so other than an issue of overly stiff paint, things were just fine. I set up on a dock on the Brant Rock side of the Green Harbor River. I secured my field easel to a railing with a bungy cord and positioned it facing north. The turquoise boat named Underwing was being worked on, perhaps slated for dry dock. Meanwhile, it was the boat that was docked for the duration of the paint-out!
