has caught my attention recently so I decided today I would create a copy of his work. Disclaimer: I paint these simply for practice.
This scene of boats is such a beautiful painting he did. The rust on the surface is so lovely. So off to paint a dry docked boat, or two. I fiddle with these copies to learn as much as I can. Note the yellow circles where there are areas I went back in to change. My first thought was to simplify his painting, leaving out the far boat edge on the left side. I laughed to myself as I went back to add it, wondering why I thought I needed to change anything he did! So, this is my first attempt. As it’s posted I see a load of obvious errors in just the drawing. I will use the excuse I was excited to paint, and sketched fast. Huge mistake. I could paint this scene 100 times and continue to learn from it.
