Long Tails (more!)

I love painting boats, seascapes, and landscapes. I find boats difficult to draw, difficult to represent and difficult to paint, but I love painting boats nonetheless. Boats represent our will to explore, to escape, to discover. Boats place in nature, at the mercy of nature, and in need of understanding nature.

These are longtail boats on a Thai beach, a largely imagined scene. I include both the tonal/composition sketch, and the finished painting. I really enjoyed making this composition, and the process of painting. I’m fairly happy with the results !
