Last Boat
Original Oil
14" X 21.5"

If this looks a bit different than the work-in-progress images it is because this image is a scan of the painting. While working on a piece it is not practical to scan it in progress. I grab my small backup camera and then try and adjust the colors in Paint Shop Pro to match what is on my easel.

The painting will change a little more once I spray varnish it. The darks become more intense, not so sunken. I adjusted a little for that with the brightness/contrast function in Paint Shop Pro.

This has been a fun exploration of color and textures for me. Don't be surprised if you see some of these hues in future wildlife paintings.
