Just another beautiful day....
I walked (no hiked - it was a long walk carrying stuff!) over to the marina with my paint stuff. I could have left the chair behind, it was useless, too low to the ground. I wish I had my french easel, I could stand! I found a table I could sit at - that was good!
I painted boats in the marina. There were too many within my line of vision, so I simplified. I tried not to get too bogged down on details, that's when I seem to run into trouble.
I chose the white, light blue, and dark blue yachts because I thought the 3 of them looked pretty neat right next to each other. I ignored the big one on the end. The gas pump and fire extinguisher were left out too. I didn't add all the poles that were in the water either. When I got back to the room I realized the post in the foreground was way too big! Pared it down a bit, now i think it looks OK.
I should switch over to acrylic now, so these can dry. Otherwise my cousin will have a houseful of partially done paintings to keep for me until May. She might not want to!
