Deck Work -a plein air painting from Balboa Island, CA -SOLD

oil 9x12 inches magnify The second morning I found a nice place in the shade for this piece. The worker was coming and going, but I got plenty of phone shots of him in different positions. I placed the figure in the initial draw-in, then finished him last using my photo references. The human element always adds life and interest to what otherwise might be a fairly mundane scene. This painting is framed and available at The Debra Huse Gallery, Balboa Island, CA. 949-723-6171


  1. This is wonderful. I love nautical, boats, water....ahhhh, I live in the desert.

  2. Really beautiful. The reflections in the water and general sense of light! My husband and I boat and one of these days I will paint some boats, this is inspiring!!
