Yellow Belly - Oil
6x6, oil on board
Day 3 of 30...this closeup of a boat in the harbor is as "loose" as I can paint. My tendency is to paint too precisely and (you would think) painting precisely would be harder than painting loosely...but au contraire...not the case at all! So, the next time you see a painting that's painted loosely...consider the difficulty and admire the artist's finese! A little tidbit....the boat's lettering really wasn't FYI in really life...but I liked it, so it stuck. A little FYI about this piece.
