The Old Boat
I have been developing my own style for awhile and today a friend came over to paint with me. She is a wonderful artist and tends to paint in a very realistic style. She asked me to help her paint in a more "loose, painterly manner". We had a little art lesson and so much fun! I had her use a black canvas and we both used acrylics. We chose a very simple scene of an old boat docked on a beach. The reference photo came from Alun Davies and Paint My Photo. Her painting turned out great and very different from her usual style. Mine is shown here. This is an 8" x 10" on a canvas panel.
