Because I live in Southern California, if you look at the title of this painting, you are probably thinking that this boat is in Newport Beach. Actually, I visited Newport, Rhode Island a few months ago and snapped the reference photo for this painting. That boat looked a bit more seaworthy than this one does but at least this was fun to paint. I used my trusty palette knife again for this one.
So far, I'm almost halfway done with this challenge and it hasn't been as hard as I thought it would be but I also have only done a few paintings that I consider to be keepers. I learned a long time ago that not every painting is going to be good and very few will be great but striving for excellence is one of the things that keeps me painting.
I work in just about every art medium I can get my hands on with my favorites being watercolor and silk painting. I love to experiment with different mediums and styles of painting. I try to paint every day and will post my paintings here as I finish them. I really appreciate any comments you may have on the paintings.
