"Shark's Parlour"16" X 20" Oil on Canvas
One of the sportfishing boats down in Santa Barbara harbor caught my eye. I have always liked the look of sporfishing boats and love the nice big cockpit area they have for the anglers to do the fishing from. I recently saw an old one for sale and it was designed by the great Phil Bolger back in the early 60's...totally awesome looking boat.
When painting a mostly "all white" boat you really find yourself looking at the various shades of whites, off whites, creams, blues, greys...they are usually all in there some place you just have to seperate them on your canvas. Doesn't soiund like a big deal but those colors can fool you at times and then it gets interesting, hahaha.
