Red Boat, River Bend, Branford, CT
8 x 10" oil on canvas panel
This piece was started as a plein air piece during a weekly plein air class. I finished up in my studio based on memory and photo references. I love the way the kayakers are paddling their way down the river. There's always so much activity happening along the Branford River, from boaters, to those dining at the nearby restaurant Nellie Greens or enjoying the summer at Stony Creek Brewery. This piece was painting at Barbarie's marina across the river. I was standing on the once famous Lobster Snack location.
