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.
