"Mackerel Cove"

Bailey Island, Maine

Green field and blue harbor with boats.

"Mackerel Cove" is an original Maine watercolor painting by Beth Whitney. 

Panoramic view of the Johnson Field Preserve at Mackerel Cove. This is one of the prettiest spots on Bailey Island in Harpswell, Maine. You have the green field, milkweed, golden grasses, and a perfect view looking at the cove. Glenn's red building is on the right. There are always boats coming and going, people playing with their dogs, and folks walking on the beach. 

I worked in a 1" grid for much of this to get the proportions just right.  It's very detailed!  The painting took 3 weeks to complete.

My Seascapes Gallery has more dynamic watercolor paintings of beautiful coastal locations.

Giclee prints are available in several sizes.
