I grew up around boats, and the water, in New Jersey and Maine. Sailboats, motor boats, dinghys, kayaks, sunfish, all of that. Oddly, I haven't painted them much. Dunno why. I've also spent 26+ years working with horses, and I haven't painted them much either. Time to work on both subjects! So anyway, here's an attempt at a lovely boat I saw in Delaware last fall--a fishing boat with a glorious hull color! I think I have a few more touch ups to do on this painting, but I have to be careful not to overdo it. The more details I add, the more precise I try to get, the more accurate I have to be...and big chunky pastels are not great at small fussy details!
