THOUGHTS ON PAINTING
Ready to embark on a seafaring adventure, the boat in the Red Boat at the Seashore Painting faces toward the ocean, pointed out at it in a determined and prepared manner. This red boat is composed of short, careful, layered brushstrokes. The brushstrokes that compose the tan sand are also heavily layered to provide a realistic texture to the coarse material depicted. Off in the distance of the background of this painting sits the expansive ocean disappearing in the distance, composed of white foam, a light blue shore and a rich, deep navy blue in the background.
