Today's painting of a sail boat with US flag sailing. I took away the heavy detailed first painting. The background Island forest was way too heavy. So I started over and kept the painting from getting too over worked. I like it better. Enjoy.

Today's painting is another sailing boat painting. Inspired by our recent whale watching trip in the San Juan Islands here in Washington State. In this painting I mostly used the brush but I did use a little painting knife in the sea.The painting is very wet so it reflected the light on the brush stroks. Enjoy

This is a model we had for our Tuesday night portrait painting group. I don't put a price up for my portrait sketches because the Seattle gallery told me my portrait sketches were priced too low. So if you really want one of them send me an email, and we will talk.
