This was the first day of Paint the Town 2018. The town was Kingston and the event was part of the International Plein Air Painters (IPAP) Worldwide Paint Out held for three days, Friday through Sunday in early September every year since 2001. IPAP was founded in 2001 with the belief that plein air painters should have an organization with no regional ties and no border restrictions - artists without borders. I am happy to be a Charter and Signature (Honours) Member and I don't belong to much.
We were painting in the Williamsville District of Kingston but I was tired of painting houses. I went to Portsmouth Harbour. The cirrus was being shredded by a strong westerly jet stream. Gravity waves were apparent in the stable warm conveyor belt region of the weather system holding the cirrus. The clouds always have an interesting story to tell. Flooding rains and convection were occurring south of the border while Kingston stayed sunny and dry.
A black cigar-shaped speed boat roared eastward along the shore of Wolfe Island. A sailing boat came by later. They were distinctly different craft. I much prefer the quieter sail boat.
There was a lot of parking available at Portsmouth Harbour. Parking on a Friday afternoon in the city of Kingston was almost non existent at any price.
