Tarps ‘n hulls

At this point in the winter I am itching to find outdoor subjects of interest but most of what I find is grey. The lake is still frozen but in the distance the shrouded boats provide some notes of colour and the complex shapes, both large and small, and light and dark, create an appealing pattern. In amongst the tarps and hulls I see movement. No doubt some eager sailors working on their boats and looking forward to spring as much as I am.

    Shari, this is amazing. I live aboard our boat (sold the house, gave away as much as we could, moved aboard the boat with the dog and the hubby. . . ) and we see this kind of thing A LOT! Without the snow, I hasten to add. We are presently in Sarasota, Florida, on a mooring ball. The boating scenes just seem SO COMPLEX, and you just went splash, dash, dash, and it speaks VOLUMES!! Yes, you have an amazing eye, amazing talent, and I so appreciate that you share it.


    • Thanks so much ChesspkLady. I love Sarasota. We went there for March break for over 10 years and had a great time on the beach in Siesta Key. I love the area. What a life you must have on the boat! And beautiful views every day when you wake up!

    Your sharing of daily watercolors grows “lovelier and lovelier” with each day. Long after my viewing, my thoughts and mind go to the memory of the fresh washes of your art. You change the mundane into beauty everywhere.

    This is lovely, even seeing it with only one good eye. The blues just draw one’s eyes in. Was this a limited palette ? If so, what colors did you use?


    • Hi Judy. I guess this was a limited palette. I had some extra Cobalt Teal that leaked in the palette (this happens quite often!) so I used it in the mixes here. There’s also some red, some Burnt Sienna, etc. Hope your eye is healing well.
