  1. Love the sailboat and your loose brush strokes!

    1. Thank you Patricia, this is one of my favorite vacation spots, and one of my favorite views. Those are always easier to paint!

    1. Thank You Linda. I don't usually paint with oils so I have a very limited palette, and only one blue, ultramarine blue. I was worried this would be difficult to paint with only one blue, but I tried to remember the light and dark values and I think that helped.

  3. Just lovely, Maria! Fresh, energetic without being overwhelming!

    I wish I was on that boat!

  4. You have so captured the wind. I wish I was out in this boat!
