The Series Continues
"Hot Day on the Docks" 8 x 10 oil on linen panel
I started this on site at the Newport Shipyard docks where all the big fishing trawlers and small boats are docked. I couldn't stay long though as it was just too hot to stand in full sunshine with no shade. I have an easel umbrella but it seems to only work in less than 5 or 10 knots of wind which is rare around here. I like the colors in this. The jpeg doesn't really pick up the subtle grays in the background but I like the soft effect in the further structures. Things look a little busy in the lower right hand corner which I didn't intend but I will leave it for now. If this ends up being a bigger piece I will soften that area so it doesn't draw so much attention.
