Boat Ramp Low Tide, 8x10
As Spring slowly moves in we begin to see low tides during the day and, when the clouds cooperate, it's possible to slip in between wet skies to actually do a painting. The subdued light still make vibrant color a stretch to find but in this one they were in the shadow of the dock and rocks and I like those little jewels of blue and green.
This is a painting with no preliminary drawing. Using the mass of trees in the distance I blocked in around the top half of the shed. Next came the rectangular shape of the shed. After that it was just a matter of adding all the other doodads. Big shapes and doodads...that's about it.
