"Marina Boats" oil marine landscape

I found these boats at our local marina in Poulsbo, Washington. I was drawn to the great reflection of the overcast sky moving in to a clear day and the contrasts that created in the water with the white boats. These boats are parked near the port office which is a floating "office boat" I think that would be a great job! ...Except that I would spend too much time fishing.....or painting the scenery!.

9x12 oil on oil proof textured paper mounted to gator board (works for me!..=])   sold

I have included the under-painting for this work.....For awhile now I have been drawing my compositions with a "drawing brush" and then working out values with a brush using the same paint.
