Vagabonds, 10 x 12
The other evening Noelle said we had to go for a walk.... so I got her leash and out we went. She then said she'd rather go to a beach....fickle dog.
We ended up at a small harbor with just enough time and light left to do a quick study. Like the last post, I used a limited palette but changed to more vibrant colors.....Thalo Blue, Quinacridone Red and Cad Yellow Light...plus white. The rigging was a challenge because I didn't have a small brush and the boats kept swinging around, the light reflecting off different stays. Stays. I don't remember if that's the word I want for the standing rigging but Gary will know when he reads this.
Noelle spent her time growling at that reddish buoy. Go figure.
