Seascape Painting With Fishing Boats Details

This large seascape painting with fishing boats features three fishing vessels in Newport News, Virginia. I created it in plein air using acrylics on archival paper. It measures 22" x 30" and full of loose brushwork and a colorful palette of earthy magentas, blues, grays and more.

Artist Notes

My connection to fishing boats goes back to the early 90's when I was a commercial fisherman. I scalloped for three years as a way to supplement my ballroom dance career. I know this is an unusual combination but fishing and dancing actually worked out quite well for me. It allowed me to work, or fish for several months and I could then take time off and focus on my amateur dance career. Kinda' cool to think back to those days.
