Tihonet Pond

This sketch is of the spillway from Tihonet Pond in Tihonet Village which is part of Wareham, Massachusetts. Adjacent to this spillway is a collection of buildings that are part of A.D. Makepeace Company, the world’s largest cranberry grower. The company, over time, became pretty much self-contained. They used to actually make the boxes and barrels used for storing and shipping the cranberries. They also had their own fleet of vehicles, complete with a service station and garages. The building that is now the market was once used as a machinist shop.

    I agree Shawn. The blue was actually going to be the base, but I never went over with a greenish gray.

    I like how you handled the greens…the bushes on either side of the water, nice!

    Thank you for the comments. I always find the greens challenging in getting the proper tones and making them look like plants rather than green blobs.
