"Quitsa Sunset, Sailboat"

“Quitsa Sunset, Sailboat”

I parked by the boat launch, hoping for inspiration. A boat sailed by in the far distance. A white sail, so far down the white-to-black value scale it appeared mid-gray against the silhouette of a purple-blue hill behind. It was gone before thought could motivate me out the door. I did get out. The sky began to gently shed it’s spectrum. The yellow leaning toward orange got me going. I caught it there, at that spot, on my canvas. But that was nothing. It went on and on into orange, fire, red, hot coals, deeper, darker, exotic red-blue, purple, stellar blue, as star and moonlight opened up the night…

Today I tried to capture another moonrise, but clouds were threatening to obscure the 30 minute painting window I had.

“Full Sail, W. Chop”, this is a Medium painting, 16″x 20″ oil on canvas, unframed. This painting has SOLD.

This is a larger version of the of the West Chop Lighthouse, from a slightly different perspective than yesterdays’ painting. Sometimes I like to paint this view with both Coast Guard houses in it and other times with just one. On this particular day I lucked out with an actual appearance of the classic schooner, “Shenandoah”…
