|"Leaving the Harbor" 11x16 oil on linen panel|
When you're leaving the Los Angeles Harbor, you pass a long rock jetty on your way out to sea. If it's in the early morning, often the marine layer shrouds the harbor and visibility is limited. Sometimes if you're lucky, you just might see something like this beautiful, 3 masted sailing ship on it's way out to open waters!
Probably the most fun part of this painting was getting the sails to read full of wind. Using light and dark shadowing you get the sense that there is definitely wind in these sails!
