Off Vinalhaven

11 x14 Oil on canvas board

This is too fussy for me, not quite loose enough, but it was too late once I realized it. They are good lessons to learn, we learn from the good and the bad (more from the bad, I think!)


  1. I really love the blue coming in through the tree trunks on the right side. Great design.

  2. Lovely composition. I like the pink of the rocks that is mirrored in the sky color. I know how frustrating it can be to get too fussy. Another blogger, Mike Barr, suggested to me that I do most of the initial painting with a brush that seems too big for the painting, and then only use a smaller brush for details. I have been trying that, and it seems to be working (sometimes :-)

  3. I really like this! And it doesn't look fussy to me at all. Nice job!
