Two Yachts at Anchor

My latest mixed media painting was inspired by a photograph my brother/sister-in-law took whilst sailing between Darwin and Indonesia.  It is also a house-warming gift for them whilst they anchor on dry land and fix their yacht and save up some money to continue on in their journey.

Here are some evolution pics!!

In the third pic I had to put another layer of tissue paper over the blue paint and tissue paper.

I'm looking forward to putting on a couple of layers of gloss varnish and bringing out the colours more.  Then I'll post some more pics.

I'm reluctant to show you the photo that inspired this painting because....well, I want you to see this painting as an entity on it's own and not compare it to the photo as I've made changes in scale/proportion.

Here's a couple of close up shots:

Have a great weekend everybody.

  1. I love it and I think they will too! What a super house warming gift for them! It is one of your best. They always say the best gifts come from the heart!
