Wilmington [NC] Waterfront Day 1

Market Day on Water Street, 8x10" oil on panel
Last weekend was International Plein Air Painters WORLDWIDE Paint Out, and for plein air artists in Eastern North Carolina, the waterfront in Wilmington was the designated place to be. Other than a battleship and a few alligators, there’s nothing scary about the Cape Fear River along which the city of Wilmington is situated. Instead, the eastern shore of the Cape Fear River in Wilmington is a place to find tourists as well as locals strolling, shopping, and grazing along its mile-long Riverwalk. The whites of the tents set up for the Saturday Farmers Market in Riverfront Park caught my eye, and because the entire market would be folding up at 1:00 pm, it made it easy that morning for me to decide  my priority subject matter.
