BOAT PEOPLE – ACRYLIC PAINTING

P1020452(1)

I was thinking about entering the marine artists exhibition in London. I had a couple of suitable paintings but wanted something a little different so that I could judge what it is that they are looking for a bit better and worked up this idea. Now that it’s complete I’m a little underwhelmed by it. I have got tighter than I would have liked. I’ll prop it against the wall and have a look at it over the next week or so  and make my mind up. I have used motifs that I have used as subjects before, in case you are wondering whether you’ve already seen it.

HARBOUR BOATS BOBBING IN THE FLOW – WATERCOLOUR PAINTING

I had a number of photos of boats in the small harbour at La Val Andre in Brittany and wondered how they would look in an elongated format. I was taken by the two red boats (off different photos) against the grey green of the water.

SETTING SAILS – ACRYLIC PAINTING

p10203191

I’ve been a bit busy this week with an exhibition running and another starting next week, I suddenly realised my blog needs a new posting. So here it is, continuing with the beach theme. A bit more colourist than my normal fair, but I suppose I need to  relieve the muted tones occasionally, just in the name of variety.
