I've been reading the Edgar Payne composition book. There are a number of old sailboats/fishing boats in the thumbnails he shows for examples. This is a detail of a painting that I am working on that incorporates some Payne ideas. It's just for practice. (You seldom get to see boats like this just sitting in the sand---but it makes for a great visual).
Maxine the cat and I had a nice visit today (the cat I am cat-sitting). While she and I sat and listened to some afternoon television* ...I also took the time to paint the big leather recliner in gouache. *Afternoon television is terrible!
Yesterday I went to art discussion...to see what everyone brought, go HERE.
