Moonrise Over Provincetown, 6x18, Original Oil Painting by Kelley MacDonald



This was done last night on location in Provincetown, where I am holed up this week working on a commission.  Each 6x6 panel can stand on it's own, but I think they look good all together.  
I'm feeling incredibly inspired here.  I really think Ptown is one of those spiritually key places, like Sedona.  
I will share with you the 3rd study I did today - all in one color, as it is a value study as well as a compositional study.  I have decided to hunt down or make my own canvas.  I originally offered a 24x48 because they want the 48 inch height.  But upon seeing the scene they want - I decided to find something wider, to include the boats to the right and a bit of the breakwater to the left...

  1. Love the triptych Kelley! Romantic moonlight.

    And you're right - they can stand on their own, yet lovely as a set.

  5. I love that you are feeling so inspired there. Looks like you are being very productive too. Love the little tryptich, each piece could stand on it's own. Can't wait to see the final commission piece when it is done.
