It was a little cooler in my studio today; not so humid as yesterday. The sun didn't really make an entrance until about 2pm so it didn't have time to heat up...which was nice as I was itching to get painting. I made a start on this a couple of days ago, but ran out of steam, so it was a good feeling to get working into it again this afternoon. I really wanted to work in unexpected (but somehow believable colours)...so chose a palette that was short on blue. I didn't want boring blue water. I was eyeing the raw umber in my paint drawer and decided that might change things up. I would like to ground that sailboat in the front a bit more with some dark at it's base but otherwise calling it done.I really like working on 18 x14 size, I think it's becoming my new favourite size, especially for my Kingston paintings.
