Sailing .... Sailing ....


I've been working on some local seascapes for Gallery 297 in Bristol, RI. I snapped photos of these sailboats out in Bristol Harbor & Mt Hope Bay last summer when we were out on our boat. I was charmed by the colorful spinnaker sails.

Kendra, these are really nice. I especially like the sky in the second piece. It adds an extra texture, adding interest. Hope to see more.

The sky in the second piece was done with Caran d'Arche Supracolor pencils with water to create washes. Then I used Prismacolor pencils on top. I was worried that it was too distracting from the foreground but it works ok because the sails are very vibrant. Thank you for your comments!

Lovely boats! Rich, vibrant color.

I envy your access to the water.....I'm not complaining about the Rocky Mountains, just would love to have more water.

Cindy, I am fond of the Rocky Mts too. We went skiing in Aspen in March and I didn't want to leave. Although, I would miss the water if I didn't live near it. Come visit!
