On The Waterfront

Another of those innocuous pictures in the newspaper that makes for a great painting inspiration. Yes, this one is derived from one such picture I came across recently. Water and boats hold a great fascination for me somehow.... just cannot seem to bypass an opportunity to paint them.

Also ran a teaser on my Facebook page for this painting while it was in the work-in-progress stage. And got all correct answers! :)  That was some fun....

I also loved doing the little details on this piece - things like the chairs and tables lined up in front of the cafĂ©, and the green vine climbing up one of the houses. Such details add to the general aesthetic and character of a painting. And yes, enjoyed doing the water as well; it is always a favourite thing to paint because of all the colours that you can play around with!
