" Study from the Dock ", Oil on Panel, 9"x 12" This was our last week on the boat. Time to winterize and haul out for the winter. I hate this time of year, not because of all the work that has to be done, (and there is a lot), but because it is the end of the sailing season. We did get in two final glorious days of sailing though, and I got a chance to do one more painting from the dock. I tried this same view last year. Maybe if I keep doing it over and over again I might get it right one day. I am still struggling with boats. The bright blue in the sky is Williamsburg King's Blue. I bought it for a workshop with Howard Rose and I am determined to use it. Might need to tone it down just a bit next time. The sun was so bright and just an hour into the session it was right in my eyes. I couldn't really see my colors until I packed it in and brought it inside. It is a little intense.
