Seascape: Little Boats

For this blustery day, I used brush scrapes to suggest wind; it's best seen above the sailboats. The ragged pink cloud shows the same effects, as does the background with its horizontal strokes. The movement continues in the waves and slant of the sails. Acrylic, 8x12. The blue mat accentuates the darkness, though a lighter color might brighten it somewhat. The present arrangement helps suggest a cooler clime as opposed to a summer day. The ripples happened because the canvatex isn't glued to cardboard like most are. At least they're only noticeable on screen.
