HarwichPort Main Street
The rain ended this morning and bright sunshine brought many out. Harwich is a popular town for visitors on Cape Cod. A painting of this strip of Main Street is iconic. It has two very important shops; for adults there is George's Pizza and for kids there is Dr. Gravity's Kite Shop. George makes a delicious Greek Pizza and is always busy. This is late morning and he already has customers. The sun was nearly overhead and cast downward shadows. The color of a cast shadow is a slightly complementary color to the surface it falls on. So, the cast shadow that crosses white is blue and the cast shadow falling on red is a greenish red.
Had a lot of people stop and chat. I am amazed at how many paint watercolor. I suppose painters find their way to the Cape to enjoy that special light and quaintness for painting.
