"Boat Haven across the Marsh" Port Townsend, landscape ,oil painting

A favorite haunt of mine, the boat haven in Port Townsend. There is a wealth of interesting scenes here and several good restaurants tucked into the warehouses and buildings that make up PT's eclectic boating community.

I like how you put the center of interest at the top 1/3 of the canvas.

The water shimmering in the light with the reflection of the marsh is very nicely done! I like the colorful subjects as well. You are doing wonderful work lately!

Thanks Silvi! using the top third for the subject has been working well for me lately. I did another one today!

I'm loving these high horzons, Robin! Beautifully done!

I have to agree, Port Townsend has a wonderful boat yard (or 2). I love to drive through and see the massive hulls out of water.

Your composition is wonderful as well as your coloring. Super!

Hi Nancy! Don't you just love the Boat Haven! I could spend weeks painting there!

Thank you!
