Evening Sun at Macdonald Marine

11" x 14"
Oil on Canvas
We have had a stretch of sunny weather here and have gotten in a little sailing. Last weekend, we had our fun regatta for people who don't often race their sailboats. In the early evening, the sun reflected a gorgeous orangy yellow over this scene. We normally think of sailboats as being more picturesque, but I thought these powerboats looked great in the September light.

Beautiful painting, Catherine. I love the warm light hitting the boat. Well done!

Catherine, What a lovely painting. Great job with the light, something we don't usually get to see in your rainy day paintings.

Hi Catherine, I am glad that you are having some sunny weather. I was begining to think you may end up drowning. Though you could send us some of your weather as we have been in drought for years now. Not looking forward to another potentially bad fire season this summer.
Your painting as usual is superb. I am really enjoying the reflections in the water and the strong bold colors that you have utilised.
Have you heard anything from your entry into the magazine competition? Kay

Hi Catherine,

This is an absolute beauty! The late afternoon sun is almost magical. I feel desperate to be outside and see it, because (insert scary music riff here) winter is coming.

Love this painting!

Take care,

Barbara

This is great - I love how you tackled the water, just beautiful.

Thanks everyone for your comments. And Kay, I haven't heard anything about the competition, but I imagine it will be awhile as it is for the Nov/Dec. issue. You made me chuckle with your drowning comment. Wish we could send you some rain.
Barbara, don't mention the W word yet! Thanks for your positive words.

This is such a nice piece, Catherine... The play of light is catching and rather comforting, in a way. I like it. And your drinking with the Masters series is really creative, well done and overall neato.
