Time for a boat I thought this morning. I’ve had both successes and stinkers with boats but when they work they’re great fun to do.
Starting in with the painting I went straight for the boat. Both with drawing and painting I find the best path is to do the bit that interests you the most first. No saving things for last here.
I was still fairly happy at this point. Nothing is stated too definitely – especially the gubbins that seems to be in the back of all boats – and I was feeling good. Next step was the scary part – the water!
And here he is with the background and ropes and stuff quickly put in. The horizon is actually straight – I just didn’t have the editing tool handy. Pretty happy with this although sometimes when I leave paintings on display for a few days I go off them. We’ll see.
