The Yacht Club 10" x 12" o/p
This painting was painted on a 'Salmon pink' pre stained Masonite panel. (oil stain) The palette for this painting was a rather limited palette.
The colors were Cerulean Blue, Ultramarine Blue, Alizarin, Cad. Red Medium, Cad. Yellow Medium, Cad. Yellow Light and Titanium White.
This painting represents about two and a half hours of painting. ( in the sun )
Have a great day !
'til next...

Gidday Mate!...Nice one!Lots of nice brushwork... activity and movement...despite the reduction in detail. Like it!
Allison and Andrew were over to the "wind farm"for a trip.Things sure are changing in our old world Loner. None of the ol' trails seem the same any more. Glad that we had the chance to enjoy them together...when they were ours alone to travel! Good painting...glad to see you "out there"!

Hello Frank,
I love the sky in this one particularly and envy you for the waterfront.
Your blog is in my reader, so I am watching you man, all the time:).

Tonto !Yes , things have changed. It just does not seem the same.It really feels that new subject matter has to be found and new trails blazed. Hard to find within the old stomping grounds.
But, paint we will...:~)

(EH) Martin ! Always nice to hear from you. Thanks for the compliment. That waterfront always seems to yeld a motive for a painting if nothing else can, "turn my crank". :~)

"Your blog is in my reader, so I am watching you man, all the time:)."

That must be the reason for the 'chill' I feel from time to time... :~)ha ha..

Looks like this could be just across the river from me, at Cowes, on the South coast of England. Beautiful work. Lindax
