A gray day and a red boat

Yale Sail
12 x 16


A grayish day and the brightest thing around was the red sailboat on Yale Lake. The sun was hidden behind a veil of clouds, sometimes bright, sometimes dim, but always diffused. Challenging conditions to paint.

The more I paint, though, the more I think that all conditions are challenging to paint. That's the joy and the problem of painting.

I like how the warmth peaks through the grays...and also how the boat is dwarfed by the huge landmass.

Nice use of a dominant color and neutrals-beautiful!
