From the "Sea Fever" poem by John Masefield…not to be ignored, also from one of my favorite movies (which I have introduced my children to – classic cinema) Willy Wonka. So back to the painting, I really dove into the sky, partially blended one of the sails in with the sky and piece by piece, or stroke by stroke as it were, I layered in the water and reflections. Lastly I took a chance on a composition that divides the canvas nearly in half. This is a 36 x 24 oil on canvas, please let me know any C + C!
