|"Too Foggy" - 5 x 7 inches - oil on paper|
This little boat which was moored nearby made a nice painting subject. The water was glassy smooth but visibility was poor so I simply faded out the background to create the foggy effect. I spent a long time trying to get the shape of the boat right. Boats are hard - especially when they move around!
In case you haven't noticed, I've been painting a lot this month. I've been participating in another 30 day painting challenge. There are 300+ artists around the internet who took up this challenge to paint 30 paintings in 30 days. Frankly, I didn't make a big announcement since I didn't want to commit to something that I might not finish. I did the challenge in January and got pretty burned out by the end of the month. I definitely favor quality over quantity but have been so inspired by my time in Newburyport that is has been easy to paint every day. So, by the end of September, I will complete about 25 paintings and that is good enough for me :)
