This view of Black Head on the east side of Monhegan Island, Maine has been painted countless times. Paintings of Black Head are hanging in museums by such well-known artists as Edward Hopper, Robert Henri, Rockwell Kent, and N.C. Wyeth. Monhegan Island, a small 4.5 square mile island 12 miles off the Maine coast, is an ongoing artist's colony and fishing village dating back to the late 1800s. Your challenge is to paint your virtual plein air interpretation of this noted scene, not a reproduction but your interpretation, let loose. I took this photo August 20, 2013 during a three-day inspirational stay on Monhegan. May you be so inspired. (PS If you go I recommend staying at the Monhegan House, there are no room keys; it's an island.)
