Candied, a Work in Progress
6" x 6" oil on stretched canvas
The second painting is a larger painting of a boat I photographed at Gibsons Landing. You may recognize this boat and that is because I have painted it once already, though a different view. I'm trying a different approach to this version. The first boat was painted on a burnt sienna base and this one is painted on black gesso. The feel of the scene is quite different and I have very amazed at how much a difference the base colour makes.

The only fully (well, for now...) completed part of the painting is the water. I'm really quite happy with the way the water turned out in this one. Its a combination of pthalo blue, cerulean blue, titanium-zinc white, and touches of indigo in the darkest areas. There is lots left on the boat yet and I'll post updates and I slowly build on this painting.
