Bonnie Loch

Another land locked retiree, awaiting repairs but more likely abandoned to the earth. Expand your horizons through subject growth-bink.

I like the browns in this one, and all the details like the tarp and other things that I don't know what they are.

Ron Morrison said...

Thanks N.N., me neither.

This looks nice, Ron. The boat really pops out of the scene. Nice rust work, too.

Ron Morrison said...

Thanks Michelle, I have always liked negative painting where the background is rich and deep, mysterious....

Tracy Wandling said...

Your backgrounds are wonderfully dark and colorful...makes the subject stand out beautifully. I like all the little touches too...the rusty chain and the little flag. Are they really there or is your imagination so full of pictures you don't even need a model anymore?! I envy that...

Ron Morrison said...

Thanks Tracy, actually I think that I can conjure these things out of thin air, I'm a "thin air" painter. The "Shingle Shack" does not contain a grain of truth, nor does the "Queen Anne Shanty". This boat actually does exist.

Someone is giving this one a little TLC. Love your background!!

Ron Morrison said...

Thanks Joan, I like to do the dark backgrounds.

Blue cloth really helps to define the round shape of the hull.. the verticals of the cloth and ladders works nicely with the horizontal. Good work Ron.

Thanks W.K., there are tarps everywhere in this part of the world, I lose patience with the folds.
