cape cod boats different elevation


16"x20"
A new perspective of yesterdays piece. I like this one much more. Boats always seem stronger when they are higher in the picture plane. I layed more paint and used bigger brushes. I've felt lately that my small paintings have more impact. I realized that relative brush size meant my bigger pieces were undersized in the brush department. Still room to improve for sure but I'm excited to continue on with this in mind.
Off to the Alexandria festival of the Arts tomorrow.

So true about putting boats higher. This one is absolutely superb. Of every one of yours I've seen, this is maybe my all time favorite. It's so right.

Thanks again Laura!

Thanks Sam. I like this one too. Sometimes even a blind squirrel finds a nut. I hope I can find some more!
