Looking East

So here is some progress on a recent painting as it continues to unfold and become what it will.  I am liking the overall composition because it is interesting and invites the viewer to look around within the image.  The image that this painting is based upon contains many more canoes.  I chose to paint these ones for a balanced visual that creates contrast and harmony.  I wish I could paint every one of them.  This is an image from the 2016 Canoe Journey in Suquamish.
