"Barred Island"

Acadia National Park

Watercolor painting of Barred Island in Deer Isle, Maine by artist Beth Whitney | Downeast Watercolors

"Great Head" is an original Maine watercolor painting by Beth Whitney. 

This lively seascape painting shows the surf rolling in at Barred Island in Sunset, Maine. This is my favorite preserve in Deer Isle. The rocks in the foreground look like jasper or agate when they are wet.

It's truly magical - you walk through the lush, verdant woods for awhile, and then out to a sandy beach. This vantage point shows Barred Island (connected by a tidal sandbar). Crockett Cove is off to the left and open sea on the right. It's a wonderful place to take in the changes in tide. If you go at low tide, you can cross over and loop around the island.

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

This unmatted painting is ready for you to take to your favorite framing gallery to finish.
