I thought this picture needed something, so I added the mast to the front boat. I think I'll lift a little (it's too dark), but otherwise, it was a good afterthought.
I like working scenes in pairs like this; it's easier for me be pleased with one in contrast to the other! Last night I went through my photos and put together a few other sets to work on.
Friday I'm hoping to join one of my teachers, Marie Natale, painting outdoors at the Emlen Physick Estate in Cape May.The house has an amazingly complicated red roof and pretty grounds (and a Twinings teahouse, so I can look forward to a great lunch). The inside is typically Victorian, i.e., hideous--dark crowded rooms.
