Painting “buoys” (from my VACATION series)

BUOYS at the end of DAY FOUR.

End of DAY ONE...

DAY TWO...

DAY THREE...

DAY FOUR: I thought you might like to see a buoy in progress. This is the 5th one down from the top (shown in the photo above as a red circle.)

Here it is done.

This is the 6th buoy from the top. I want this one to be a bit of out focus so I'm blending the outside edge into the sand.

It's pretty scary-looking right here!

Here it is mostly done. I need to let it dry for a day or two so I can blend the red and white edges for a softer, blurry look.

This is where I am at the end of DAY FOUR.

BUOYS is the fourth oil painting in my series called "VACATION."

For the past several days I’ve been working on the fourth painting in my series called “VACATION.” I’ve been painting a string of red buoys that were resting in the sand while the tide was out. I took the photo while we were in Cedar Key, FL during February.

I wasn’t looking forward to painting this piece as much as some of my others, but once I got started, it has been great fun. If you look closely, you’ll notice a sea-gull in the blurry part of the water at the top of the painting. I love that!

This piece is a little different from my whimsical landscapes, but I’m pretty excited with how it’s turning out. It’s a more grown-up version of my normally playful scenes with water.

  1. This is really beautiful. I wish I had a cottage in Door County. I would decorate around this series. Very unique.

    Love you!
