I can't remember the last time I tried painting boats. My trip to the Cape Cod docks gave me some reference.

I really like this. The reflections and sunlight, shadows are spot on.
Keep it up...

Really quite wonderful. You paint the seaside really well, Derek. I think you need to buy a house by the shore. ;)

Working boats! My favorite and you've painted them so well! Just wonderful!
Thanks my "quick dry" pals:

Great job - the kind of subject / moment it's easy to see , not so easy to capture so well as you have done.

I love boats and am lousy at painting them. Yours are a delight Derek.
Thanks so much.

As a New Englander, I've always loved paintings of the seacoast with boats.

This is a beauty. I think maybe it's the color difference between the sea and sky and of course everything else that makes it soo real I can almost feel the air. Wonderful.

Derek....of course living on LBI I painted boats many times but yours are fabulous....the rigging is so detailed ....I always found that the hardest part of the boat scene....great job....:thumbsup:
Blue, Good Buddy: the rigging mad me crazy.
Thanks my friends, Derek

Boats look so simple, buy they are actually very complex subjects to draw or paint. WELL DONE! A little different scene from your norm. I like it very much.

Very nice. Love all the different colours in the water around the stern of the boats.

Fantastic as usual...
It's been awhile since I've visited this site, but delighted to see that you're still posting your fabulous work Derek. There is something about your colour palette that I find soothing and your brushwork is awe inspiring!
Hey Kathy: thanks very much.

Very nice work Derek! I dread painting boats with lots of ropes and things sticking out. :)
Thanks Wilfred. I LOVE lines.:)
