30 Day Challenge - Day 6 - Boat Building

Today for Day 6 of the 30 Day Painting Challenge I returned to Weeks Boatyard in Patchogue. Most of the boats are wrapped for the winter so I didn't want to make them my focus. I looked for a spot that had a building that wasn't completely blocked by buildings in storage. I liked the front of this building and I couldn't resist those red doors. This was done with gouache.

Check out some of the other artwork for the 30 Day Challenge on Leslie Saeta's blog.

I thought I would post some of the sketches done of me at the portrait party. Not all of the 13 other people in my group have posted their sketches, but here is a sampling. Notice the completely different styles.

  1. Love the red doors, Joan and the wreaths are a nice touch too.Thanks for sharing pics of the sketches of you - so much variety and talent!

    1. Thanks, Val. Glad you enjoyed seeing them. I haven't seen some of them posted yet.

  2. Really nice to see a wintery scene of a boatyard -- usually they are portrayed in the summer. I think Katie Woodward captured your "essence" very well!

  3. Love the red doors, of course. Nice scene. Your portraits are fun and interesting to see. Thanks.
