This red boat was an exercise in speed and composition. When I arrived at the beach and began unpacking my gear all the colors were muted because of the overcast sky. I knew that might change over the course of the day so I decided to work small. I wanted to finish several paintings as the clouds burned off and the light changed.
I could have focused solely on the boat but I wanted to experiment with my composition. I liked how the vertical lined of the pier posts contrasted with the horizontal line of the boat. Heavy brush strokes and thick paint helped me add spice to this little one.
