That'll Do

in Art

I was painting during the 14th WORLDWIDE Paint Out Sept 9-11, 2016 GREAT WORLDWIDE PAINT OUT with the event organized by the Kingston School of Art. This is the second painting in that particular series.

The shifting sun prompted me to move westward along the break water. I did not have to move very far. I liked the looks of the steel boat "That'll Do". The colours and reflections were interesting. This boat was designed for really rough weather with a raised box to apparently extend your head into and to then peer outward above the deck through the circular windows on each of the sides. I liked how the ripples were centred on the boat as it bobbed similar to fishing cork in Portsmouth Harbour. The autumn afternoon sun felt good on my back.

Warmest regards from Phil the Forecaster … keep your paddle in the water… and your oils and brushes clean...
