After weeks of appearing to have not much to show, at last a new canvas!
I have actually been working very hard and have made several new pieces, but for the moment they are under wraps and I'm only letting one free at the moment.
The summer seas canvas was inspired by a little boat trip I had in August into Portree bay.
I took the photo below because it made me smile.
I did not go for a boat trip in this particular rowing boat! The real Brigadoon is a little larger and more seaworthy, thank goodness.
August was a dreadful, wet month, but this particular day was beautiful!
Well my seagull canvas began with a boat in the foreground but I really didn't like it, the seagull to me needed to be the main focus. All the heavy shapes of the boats just seemed to battle against what I wanted.
I then remembered the little sail boat I had seen at sea on my boat trip.
So out went the big boat and in came the small distant sail....
I am much happier with it now, my seagull has space to fly.
