A preview of the sailing series.

Racing No. 1

My goal is to keep the paintings simple with clean colors.  I want the viewer to feel the wind filling the sails, the tension on the lines and the angle of the boats cutting through the water.

Sketchbook drawing: Drawn first with fountain pen followed by watercolor.  I kept the color palette limited, warm and cool blues into violets with just a touch of  yellow.
