Old Blue - update
I'm nearing completion on this piece. If I have enough time, I hope to finish it this week. I'm building more shading and completing little sections of peeling paint and dampness in the plywood on the base of the boat. Detail is what will make or break this piece I believe, as its such a tight crop. And, once I get into it, I adore detail work. Heaven knows what that says about me!
Once the stippling is complete I will likely reinforce the warm light of early morning as it lit the boat, with a pale wash of watercolour. The hours on this so far? I've not really been keeping count but I'd say probably 40, maybe more.
