Steveston Britannia Cannery

Boat Study
8 x 10
oil
Since I'm enjoying rather rainy damp weather here on the coast I thought I'd do a small study of a retired boat and cannery turned into a historical park.   A possible candidate for a larger piece.  I enjoyed doing this quick little painting but discovered that the canvas sketch pad that I was using is student grade and the oil and medium has soaked through.  Another lesson on why it pays to use the best quality materials possible without exceptions.

Oh, yes, do a large one next year, Barb. The little roofs have a lovely rhythm!

Hi Marie, Thank you so much - I'm struggling with how large to go on this one. Have a great Christmas and a wonderfully creative New Year!
