Messing About with Paint

Skiff

Oil on Canvas 50cmx26cm

When we pass the lagoon on our way in and out of town, a rowing boat used by fisherman catches our attention. It’s position continually changing with tide, and use. A painting of the rowing boat reflected in mirror smooth waters. 
I used the figure of 8, lying on its side, technique  to get the proportions of the boat correct. It’s a simple way if ensuring that the curves, and proportions work effortlessly together.
