Here is this mornings little (8x10") sketch featurings new dories built this spring at the Dory Shop, a mere four minutes distant from my studio. On my web site (rodneymackay.com) , I'll be detailing the creation of this image showing how the background was modified for the sake of simplicity and to make the boats the centre of interest. These paintings start in a very loose manner most of the drawing being done with paint. With man-made structures like this, a bit of hard edge work takes place as the painting progresses. The surround has a lot of toothbrush acrylic paint spatter in its make-up. A miniature action non-objective work within the larger design.
