Another sailing sketch

Here’s another sketch from my sail a couple weeks ago. I did this with my compact kit in a Stillman and Birn Alpha sketchbook. While it buckles more than the moleskine watercolor sketchbook, the paint seems to behave better with a bit more life. I think I will work this one up into a larger painting later. There’s some good potential here, with a feeling of really being part of the action.

    I especially like the way you’ve handled the sky.

      Thank you. I was pleased with that as well. My style is changing a bit and I like where it’s going. Thanks for following along!

    You are great with water.

      Thank you! Painting and sailing go so well together, I need to do more of it. The trick is funding a way to paint sailing and water scenes, which are naturally and understandably popular, in a way that is enough different to not be just another sailing painting or just another sunset.
