light study


6"x6" oil/panel
So I had to do another quick boat study. Yesterdays piece needs work. I had some paint left on my palette so hammered out a light study. I will do a big version of this guy next week. Now, I really am off to Scarsdale...................

I think most of your boat paintings are really good, but I swear this is one of the best I've seen.

Thanks Sam. It felt good and I knew I needed to get it out. Looking forward to a larger piece with the same freshness.

Only you can slice a canvas down the middle and pull it off with finesse.

Thanks Loriann. I remember one of my instructors quotes "You must take chances to develope as an artist. Laws can be broken" unquote.
