Schooner with White Sails


Oil on Canvas - 16" x 20"2016


A magnificent classic wooden yacht races off the coast of New England – Nantucket or Martha’s Vineyard perhaps. Textural paint handling gives the viewer the experience of being on a fast moving boat with water and wind flying by. The deep blue green pigment, blue cobalt sky and titanium whites are the colors of the New England waters and sky to me. This painting has a rich surface that does not compromise the realism of the overall composition.
