Days Work Done

Oil on board 6"x8"

Another boat...came upon this one afternoon and liked the color, I probably won't be painting any more boats in this size, I seem to get too caught up in detail and it drives me crazy! I thought I'd have a change from landscapes and flowers but it didn't quite work.
I am going on holiday tomorrow and have been  painting  to try and keep ahead (that hasn't quite worked either!)  life gets so busy....hoping to take lots of photos while I'm away!! I will be back here in ten days.

In Port for the Day

6"x8" oil on board
I have seen this boat tied up here a few times and often thought about painting it...this morning it was early, not many people were around so I was able to get a good photo and some sketches. I was pleased with this view because it can  be difficult to get a good composition of a boat when they're in this harbor.

Heading Out

8"x6" Oil on board
A nice morning for fishing! I grew up around this area and love the smell of the salt water as I walk along the wharf watching the boats head out, I was a bit late this morning and most of the other boats had already gone when I saw this one on  its way up the channel.
