Want to race?

6x6 oil on masonite
Just got back from Sarasota and have some photographs of my nieces to try.  For now I'm sharing some of the work I did before I left.

These boats were at Huntington Beach, CA.  Painting white boats side by side was a challenge.  So many different whites to choose from.  I first tried to paint the color in the photo.  Something just didn't look correct.  Then I painted the boat in front a warm white and that did it!  Brought it forward and gave it depth.  I have tried to change the color of the boats like Leslie Saeta does (love her work), but was unsuccessful.  I'll keep trying because I love color- bold color.
