Westport Docks, End of Day

Westport Docks, End of Day                    oil on panel                10" x 8

A quick post on this dock scene from Westport, Washington. It's pretty active and I used an umber underpainting which I usually don't do. While it worked out, I still prefer a more vibrant color wash underneath, such as cad. red or rose.

  2. The umber underpainting definitely worked with this painting Mary. This is a fabulous piece! My eyes takes me all over!!

  3. This is wonderful, Mary! Gorgeous color! Your brushwork is superb. It's what I wish I could do! You make things look so painterly! Love it!

  4. Mary, these boat paintings are wonderful. I live right at a harbor and I rarely paint boats. It feels so challenging to me. But you are giving me inspiration. This looks really good!

  5. Oh WOW - this is seriously good!
    What a great painter you are. Colors, values. design...you have it all spot on.
    Hope all is well in your world.

  6. Mary I looked for my favorite little part and found it in the reflections at the bottom of the painting. Beautiful strokes and a very successful painting.

  7. I love this painting, Mary, especially the way the colours take my eyes for a dance all around it! Just gorgeous!

  8. Wonderful sunset colors! It seems I hear the splash of water through your painting.


Thank you for taking the time to comment. I love hearing from you!
