Did this in the studio after a Zhaoming Wu painting titled Mayan Age. I wanted to play around with gouache and was looking for a subject when I found a mini reproduction of this painting by my former teacher. Always inspirational to look at his work.
Here are 2 more boat sketches done in the summer on my lunch break. One is a little rusty fishing boat and the other is the Octopus, Paul Allen’s super yacht. Both are watercolor with white gouache.
The first one was done on my Nintendo DS from memory while sitting on an airplane (thinking of the plein air painting of the previous post). The second was an attempt at plein air painting this weekend, but 30 minutes into got cloudy and boats moved so I had to stop.
