Since warm weather is just around the corner, I though I should bring a little sunshine to the blog today. This lobster boat was sitting high and dry at low tide in Friendship Harbor.I’m always a sucker for reflected color in shadows, and this boat had a nice warmth bouncing into the shadow of its hull. One of the tricks to painting is figuring out the ways a scene can be simplified. Even though there isn’t a ton of detail in this image, there is a lot of color information I try to include. Taking advantage of warm and cool differences is how I try to capture the light in a scene.
This painting is 12×16″ oil on canvas.
