On the point

Tides. After I began painting this sweet group of dories, skiffs, or whatever they are called, I realized it would be smart to photograph them.

The two shots show the difference an hour makes.
I neglected to take a photo of the painting with the wrong-facing boat still all there. This one is of the third boat being sunk by me. What power I wield. It was actually enjoyable - sinking the offending vessel.

Beautiful painting, Dale, I love the look of the white boats and different hues in the water. Lovely reflections!

Hey! Glad to see that technology didn't keep you from sharing your outing with us.
Welcome back!

Dale Sherman Blodget said...

Thanks Janelle and Jill. And yes, it's nice to have figured out how to edit the shots again. for now, anyway. :)

Nice finish....I say "sink it" when it improves the painting.

Dick Rink said...

Great painting Dale. I think it is better off without the thirt vessel.

Dale, it has been three weeks since you blogged, mate. I'm just a wee bit worried. Are you in the brig for sinking that defenseless vessel? Are ye' needin' yer mates to come and rescue ye? Are you havin' to stand court martial and face flogging? Have ye been labeled a pirate, lass?

the boats look great in all stages. I scrolled all the way back to check out the progress.
