I can't remember the last time I tried painting boats. My trip to the Cape Cod docks gave me some reference.
14x14 Acrylics.
Cheers, Derek

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. ;)

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

Awesome!


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.

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.

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!
