"Ship Yard Entry"

"Shipyard Entry" 12"x9" Oil on Canvas

Painted on site at Shem Creek in Mount Pleasant, I took the vantage point of the entryway to the docks instead of out on the water.  It was COLD and WINDY today!  The temperature was about 10-15 degrees colder near the docks, so I was on a mission to get the information of this scene down as quickly as I could as my hands were getting to the point they couldn't feel what they held!  If it weren't for the wind, this would have been a rather warm day to paint - out in the bright sunshine.  Still, I have no right to complain as the midwest and northeast are being buried under snow as I painted this.  Stay warm, y'all!!
