Sarasota Harbor

Old Sailor
4" x 6"
This old dinghy must have been a pretty sight sailing around the harbor with the sun and wind in its sail.  Like an outcast, it was anchored well outside a flock of spanking new fiberglass dinghies.  Even though it had been patched and repainted, its classic lines were still elegant and graceful.  By contrast the new dinghies looked like bloated plastic shoes.

These small, postcard size paintings are a good way to practice paint application techniques.  I'm working on putting stokes down and leaving them.  Also using thicker paint, straight from the tube with no thinners.
