Boatyard Worker

Letting It Bleed

I liked the pink shirt on the worker sanding the boat and the great light on the boat.  Doesn't take much to inspire me.  Also liked the blue plastic tarps underneath.  Boatyards are filled with great shapes, shadows, and colors! 

Used large brushes on smooth surfaced, 6" Square Handbook sketchbook.  Allowed the paint to do what it does... let it bleed.  Attempted to combine dark areas into patterns and simplified a lot of clutter.
