|Sailboat Painting, 16" x 20", mixed media|
My husband suggested I put some paintings in his office. So, I was inspired by the old vintage sailboat paintings I see in many of the beach homes. I thought something more masculine for a law office than a floral. So, I looked online for a nice photo of a sailboat. After I had painted it for the first time. It was all fresh and crisp. This would not do.
I wanted the painting to feel vintage. So, I glazed the whole painting to bring it down and reduce the brightness. I used my usual painting and sanding method along with a palette knife to drag the paint around.
The closeups show have fun it is to look at all the texture and detail.
Ok, so this is our family room, but I gotta try it out first, right?
