Snatched moments of time


I've steadily dotted off and on with this piece.  Because of its smaller size, (6.25 x 7.5) its easily portable which means I do a little while watching the news or sometimes take it to bed with me and add another layer there.  I work on it while I have coffee in the morning and when I get home from work.  These aren't large blocks of time, but small windows of opportunity that can stretch from just a a few minutes to an hour or so.

Now that I've filled most of the boat with ink, I'm starting to develop the texture and shading.  There is grass growing in the middle of this boat.  I'm still now quite sure how that's going to work yet, but I'll figure it out as I go.  Meanwhile I'm still working on what seems to be endless plywood and its never ending texture.

Love the perspective, love the composition and love the dots! One of my favs!

There is something appealing about old boats isn't there Teresa? I quite like this piece too.
