"Blue Hill Harbor in Winter"

Blue Hill, Maine

Painting of Blue Hill Harbor in winter by artist Beth Whitney | DowneastWatercolors.com

"Blue Hill Harbor in Winter" shows the view looking across the harbor from Parker Point Road in Blue Hill, Maine.  The original watercolor painting is by Beth Whitney.

Blue Hill is one of the prettiest villages in Maine. It's quiet, low-key, has wonderful architecture, and some of the most beautiful seascape views. This view is from one of my favorite photographing routes that starts in Surry and ends in Deer Isle. Parker Point Road is a must, especially for this view of the harbor and the village beyond.

People sometimes think of winter as being kind of dull, but the ice captures so much color and reflects a veritable rainbow of colors. I'm fascinated by how the ice captures the tide in jagged textures.

My Seascapes Gallery has more dynamic watercolor paintings of Acadia National Park and other coastal locations.

This original watercolor painting includes a classic double white archival mat and backing board. It's ready to slip into a standard 16x20” frame.

If you would like me to frame it for you, I have several frame profiles available including silver and natural hardwood.  All frames include conservation grade non-glare, UV glazing, which is lightweight and shatter-resistant.

Purchasing the painting framed is a nice option if you're sending the painting to someone as a gift. Buying a matted painting is also wonderful because the recipient can choose the frame that suits their taste.
