Spent on the Shore of Malcom Island





This hardworking boat has finished working and will return to the sea flake by flake. They are everywhere here and yet they disappear as the industry vapourizes. Bink for a closer look at the inner workings.

I like the drybrush effect on the roof...very texturey. We like your boats almost as much as your cars...('we' being my son and I...he thinks your cars are cool).
I miss seagulls...

Ron Morrison said...

Thanks Tracy, three very common things which I find interesting.

I think this is my favorite of your boat paintings. Composition is strong, drawing tight, colors clean. That's a solid foundation for an excellent painting.

Michelle Smith said...

This one is nice, too. I particularly like the sunny, yet hazy atmosphere in the background.

Ron Morrison said...

Thanks W.K. just practicing.

Ron Morrison said...

Thanks Michelle, more n'likely faulty camera work.

I like it, the way it's propped up on the shore.

and I do see a seagull. On top of the last fence post.

Ron Morrison said...

Thanks N.N., there are a few boats beached around here. I think what Tracy was saying was that she used to live around here and she misses the seagulls. There are two 1/2 in the painting.

Hi! You found that I was "stalking" you! :) Glad to have you stop by and even "gladder" to stop by your blog and breathe some of your beautiful work.

Ron Morrison said...

Thanks D.D., how did you find me?

Joan said...

Ah, the stories this one could tell... Great job on that textured wood of the boat, and wonderful background.

Ron Morrison said...

Thanks Joan,the textures are fun to paint.

Ron Morrison said...

Thanks Holly, light and bright it is.

newnorth said...

ahem, ummm..... I knew that. heh.

Well, I still saw it there, and the other one's on the corner of the roof. Alrighty, I'll be quiet now.

Ron Morrison said...

You're not anywhere near as much fun when you are quiet.

I love how you used shadow and light to bring out the mood and atmosphere in the picture.
