I really enjoyed the shape of this old fishing boat. Coincidentally, it was named “Native Dancer”. This plein air is available.

This was the best kept fishing boat in the harbor where I painted.

This was another Pensacola Harbor piece that I started from life and finished in the studio.

This painting was completed from life. I remember that it was really cold that day! It’s available for purchase.

This is another painting of the same fishing boat. As you can probably guess, this painting was painted entirely from life.

This is the finished painting. Completing it took two plein air sessions and then a day in studio.

Ironically, I spent most of my time in Florida painting Vermont landscapes in my studio. But, whenever I had time I would go painting in the fishing harbor. Here is the start of a 15x30 inch plein air.

Here’s a detail of my orange shadows and violet highlights. #art #fineart #oilpainting #nature #painting #color #landscape #river #gamblincolors

I painted this 20x40” with a limited palette which gave it a wonky color harmony. I like it though - I’ll never get tired of playing with color. #art #fineart #oilpainting #nature #painting #color #landscape #river #rock #gamblincolors
