Painting at Fisherman’s Wharf in Monterey

Painting at Fisherman’s Wharf in Monterey

Becky Joy

I spent the day painting at Fisherman’s Wharf. I’ve painted here before, including the wharf. The boats aren’t something that really appeals to me. So, this time I painted a different direction, south. I started the painting, having most of the painting done except the decoration, the final strokes. I went to lunch with Kathryn Stats, Kate Starling and Marcia Bailey. Then came back to finish those final strokes.

I finished up and started walking back to the car. I intended to go somewhere to paint my 5×7’s. Instead I saw Deb Groesser and Eric Rhoades painting two homeless people. That looked too exciting to pass up. I joined the growing group. I intended to paint both the man and the woman, but by the time I started painting her, they were getting tired of their modeling job. She kept turning away and getting up, etc. Anything, but sit still. So, I gave up on her and have a painting of the man. It was a quick study, but I think I got the essence. Anyway, it was a lot of fun.
