Rowboat on the Beach

Voy Kay 21 Jan 2020

Really wanted something with a soft sky today and a relaxing mood. Canvas used was a 12"x16", not an oval this time. The sky was not that difficult yet very hard work to tap the blending in and some white every now and then. The boat was a very nice thing to do and I guess I had most joy out of the bushes today, where I normally dislike that.

Superb! I love everything in this one. Water is amazing! Especially I like the waves, how loose they are. This picture is so alive and gives the feeling of sea breath even from the phone screen!

Thank you so very much Sunnylady, you really make my day! Again!!

It looks great! I love the boat, the sky and the waves especially. Great paining.

Yes, I was surprised that the boat, so small in size, went very well. For the waves, I did a little trick with the palette knife to widen it a little, and then painted some shade underneath with a scriptliner.

Thanks MHK! I plan to paint such a boat om the FISHERMAN'S TRAIL painting, you know, that one with the wooden board. It might improve that way since this boat went so well. Thanks for the cheers!!!
