On the Easel this week

On the Easel this week

If I were painting this is acrylic, I think I would be done by now….waiting for oils to dry (before I put my hand in wet paint…again). I’ve roughed this in, wanting to capture the blessing of the shrimping fleet this April in Pass Christian, Mississippi…but not wanting to paint the rigging and thousands of flags! I chose to focus on the contrast of colors and add some mystery….what just went over the side?

  1. Love the colors, and oil makes the luminosity very rich. From the photo it looks 3D? Looks like panel and what size is it, at first glimpse it looked like 5 feet by 7 feet.


  2. I wish it was that large – it’s 24″ x 30″ on smooth canvas support. The 3d effect must be from the horrible glare across the surface – someday I’ll learn how to document my work properly….
