Dory, Dinghy, Tender – Complete

3 Dec

Working Boats - East Coast

This poured watercolor painting seemed to take a long time to complete.  I have been looking at it all afternoon trying to decide if it is complete or not.  And I am calling it done.  The colors in this are quite a bit darker than I normally would use, however, it really represents the colors of the cold Atlantic.

    Nice! I like this, it’s a different subject for you

      Hi Rose Mary – this is where I started years ago – pen and ink drawings of small boats, rocks and twigs – I guess they still speak to me 🙂

    Looks great! Love the textures of the wood on the boats and on the dock.

      This one was a nail biter. When pouring paint you usually have one tone to deal with – this painting has two – gold and green. Thanks – the texture is what I was going for.
