Under The Mast Hoist, Macdonald Marine, Hamilton

11x13 Oil on Canvas
Sometimes the colors in nature don't seem real. You think, if I painted that, no one would believe me. This evening scene was one like that. The autumn colors were so strong as the sun set, everything was illuminated. This scene is from a couple of weeks ago when there were still leaves on the trees. Since then, they have all but fallen off. I wanted to do one more boat picture before all the boats are put away and covered up for the winter. There is one last boat under the hoist waiting to be "lifted out". A time to put some things away, and start on new endeavours.

You have such a mastery with that warm glow from a setting sun..... I want to be able to do something a fraction as beautiful as this.

Love the warm reflections in this one.

This is really beautiful, a sunset with the sun setting behind you. I especially like the bright light on the bulkhead and the reflections in the water. All that orange and yellow neatly balanced by the subtle blue bottom of the boat on shore. The change of seasons... one more boat, one more leaf before the snow.
