#188 'Fishing Boat, Ile de Re' 8x10"

Early morning and gorgeous warm light. I started a painting before which was a little more square onto the boat, the composition wasn't so good. But it worked out well to scrap it and start again because by the time I was putting the light onto this painting the sun came above the horizon and lit up the front of the boat. Big yay! Really enjoyed painted it.
I am still practising the same method  with no marking out with the paint brush brush first just blocking in the big shapes...harder to do as you have to be sure of composition and drawing skills.
Happy with this result :-)


  1. And so you should be! Super painting, love it :-)

  3. Fantastic reflections, I like the way you have just suggested the background so that the eye is concentrated on the lovely fishing boat. I love the play of light on the boat and in the water.
