Simplifying shapes can be such a challenge for me.
I just kept adding too much information about the wonderful boat afloat! I still think it has to much info, but I just got tired of fussing too much. At one point or another I was just trying not to mess up even more. Don't you just hate that when it happens. It takes all the fun out of painting. All in all I enjoyed working with the color combinations but I know I can do better than this. I am in Santa Fe this week and now will head off to some galleries for inspiration and check out some artist who really know how to simplify! I might even change a few things later on this painting and have another post.
