Against the Wind

Once again I pulled from Grandpa's photos and tried my hand at capturing a moment from the distant past. This was from a very small image, about 2X3 inches, so I had to use a magnifying glass to see the details. Nevertheless, I am trying to not be too tight and go more for speed and wetter painting, particularly in sky and water. Also, especially with these B/W photos, I am limiting my palette to three or four colors. This automatically helps to tie the sky and water together, but I also wanted the boat to be part of the sea, vs a canvas sail color. Anyway, there you go...(I stole the title from a song by Bob Seger!)
