Golden Dolphin in progress

The next day dawned grey and rainy.  I had scouted a dock in town called The City Pier which afforded a great view of a pair of old fishing boats, and that's where I headed. Even though it was raining I was not going to let this scene pass unpainted! I worked on it most of the day and was not satisfied. bear in mind I had been completing three paintings a day until this one!  In the morning, still not happy about the painting I went down to City Pier again to see if I could put that spark of life into it.  The extra effort payed off and this painting sold as well at the Gala Exhibition.

The next day the sun came out again and  two painting buddies came down to the dock to share the fun. Check out Brook Borcherdings plein air work HERE   Sandy Byers amazing paintings HERE

I stayed at the pier all day again until evening, went and had dinner and then came back. It was that nice a place to spend time.
