One of my first purchases on this trip was a square shaped pack from LLBean that perfectly fits my whole outdoor painting setup so we could hike in to places I wanted to paint. We tested it out on Mt. Agamenticus, which is a shorter hike, and I quickly discovered that I needed to adjust the WEIGHT of the things I put in my pack, as my husband Chris ended up schlepping my heavy pack most of the way to and from... Rookie mistake!
That said, Agamenticus has a 360 degree view of the southern Maine coast all the way around to the White Mountains. We caught a great sunset, along with a handful of other hikers and picnicers and I made my attempt:
When I got back to my studio I finished up the painting by adding more paint and a coat of varnish to make the colors pop. Really happy with how it turned out:
