Last day

The big yellow crane has arrived at the Pointe Claire Yacht club, and that means the sailboats come out of the water for the season tomorrow. I thought I’d spend an hour or so drawing them before they disappear. It’s a warm and fairly calm day, and as I painted I witnessed one boat after another go out for one last perfect sail on the lake. Can’t say I blame them. Sketched in a Handbook Journal, 8″ x 8″.

    Another lovely painting with boats and water. You do these so well. One question-the lines -pen or a brush?


  9. Beautiful painting bringsback memories of when my husband & I had a sail boat sailing around the florida keys. happy sketching


  10. Don’t be melancholy, you’ll have a beautiful picture to give you happy thoughts until that crane puts those sailboats right back where they belong 🙂

    It is always sad to see the boats come out of the water. Up here they shrink wrap them in white plastic that is so lacking in character. You captured a beautiful look to the day!
