Empty

 Available for purchase on my website

 This boat may look slightly familiar to you if you're a regular reader.  It's the same image that I used for a painting done in watercolour previously. I laboured over the original piece, abandoned it, refreshed it, cropped it and set it afloat finally.  And it sold.  

I used oils for this version and a palette knife.  I do like the simplicity I can achieve with a knife.  It takes away my ability to fiddle to much.

This is 8" x 10" on canvas panel and ready to sail to a new owner.

Nice.

Is it my imagination or are you painting with lighter tones now the sun is back? :)

I haven't done so consciously if it is so. Also this image is a little washed out from the glare on the wet paint. However you may be right. I think the seasons affect us all.
