51) Dock

11 x 14” watercolor on 300 pound cold press paper - $75

Late August sitting on the shore looking south on Nick and Cindy’s dock. The water was very high (more than usual). While sitting I observed the water to be a montage of blue, green and purple circles, which fascinated me more than any other aspect of the painting. The sail boat came out nice with small shapes and lines of blue representing the hull and mast. I made several mistakes with the perspective including the front lines of the dock and the shore line (the land jutting out to the left of the sail boat should have been much farther back), though I suspect the layout works just as well regardless of my lapse in capturing the reality of the picture.
