Step 6. Finished painting
This is a 16x20 oil on linen, "In For The Night". This painting for me, is about the late afternoon light on the boat, and the reflections in the water. That along with what I think is a beautiful shape of this particular work boat. This is another Maine painting. Boats, water and light are some of my favorite things to try and capture in paint. This piece will hopefully look better when it is varnished and the uneven shine of the oxidation process is eliminated. I always prefer to shoot the work after it is totally tried. This painting is still very wet.
