Harbor Dingy - A Study
5 X 7 inch oil painting on canvas panel.
S O L D
This is another study from the workshop that I mentioned a couple of posts ago. It was so tempting to add in every inch of rigging to the boat, every shadow and detail but that wasn’t the lesson. After finishing this I see how simply I can state things to get the point across. I don’t need to paint the wings on the gnat on the side of the boat in order for you to tell that it’s a boat. But let me say that keeping it simple can be really complicated.
