5 Boats Racing


I am literally  turned this painting upside down before I painted the boats. So much for planning!   I think I will always have a thing for sailboats, especially small racing boats (Sunfish) like the ones I used to sail.

Night Race

  
This was fun to paint with vibrant Holbein paints (I always use Holbein), using only a few colors, one brush and my fingers. Somehow I got technically lucky and was able to let the two sailboats pop off of the canvas in a sea and sky of the same colors – … well, I think I pulled it off :-). 

Also, I have recently realized that a lot of my works have unfinished edges.  At first I thought I would cut things down to size, but I am starting to realize I like the look. Especially with this piece, I think the right edge adds to the speed of the light-blue boat.
