Shipyard At Sunset

This is a scene at the Vigor Industrial Shipyard on Swan Island in Portland. I’ve had fun experimenting with different ways of applying paint. I used a brayer, strings soaked in paint, spatula, various knives, a whisk broom, etc. I did not use brushes very much on this piece.

I’ve been painting larger pieces on linen tacked to my wall. I leave a 4″ border around it for attaching it to stretcher bars.  Once I get to this point, the border becomes distracting and I need to take it down and stretch it to really see what it looks like and to make sure the image fits the stretcher properly. I may change it after it’s stretched.

  1. Thank you very much, Howard. I enjoyed seeing the drawings on your Fine Art site. I believe that’s new, isn’t it?

    Thanks, Kathy. I’m pleased you approve 🙂

    Thanks, Dan. It was helpful to talk about it, when you were here.
