11x13 Oil on Canvas
There are three marinas in Hamilton Harbour, home to several large and small watercraft. Some big expensive boats never leave the marina, others are out all the time. This couple loved to go sailing with their dog buddy and anchored in the cove at Carrol's Point. In the morning, Polly would row out to land so buddy the border collie could play in the water. The morning sun created great reflections as it peaked over the trees in the cove.
This is so full of beautiful, shimmering light - and the reflections are fantastic. Beautiful painting!
I agree with Claire - the reflection and shimmer is exquisite!
This approach is a little different for you Catherine? More refined and subtle passages/nuances--emulates a quiet bright morning--like the balance and especially the intimate gesture.
This is a lovely painting Catherine!
I love the dark foliage background and the contrasting bright reflections! Very atmospheric!
Your detail and the story is lovely, Catherine! I look at this and realize I am not yet there with my water!
Thanks for your comments! And yes Jan, this is a little different from my normal approach. It started out as a commission, and evolved into a tighter piece.
