Underway, 8x8 oil

Underway, 8x8 oil on panel
Day 11, 'Underway' is the name on the boat.  To be honest, this isn't what I had in mind when I asked if you could guess what would be in my next painting.  Some good/funny guesses on Facebook though.  The outdoors beckons on such beautiful days!  When I started this painting my thought was to paint the boats as quickly as I could because it was such a beautiful day, they might just disappear at any moment.  That was certainly a wise thought.  I had quickly painted the yellow and blue boat, 'Underway' when a few people arrived and took it away, phew!  I painted the rest of the painting but finished the refections of 'Underway' when I got home since my reference had gone anyway.
