Miniature Canoes

"Miniature Canoes" 8"x10". Here's the wipeout and poster study for a new painting. I got the canoes from a store in the Adirondacks. I had purchased them as stand ins for a painting that I'm thinking about that combines some elements from life and imagination. I had placed them on top of the book, momentarily, while I was thinking about how to use them, when I caught a sideways glance and thought "hmm, that's not bad.." so I did a transfer drawing and got it going. The poster has exactly the color that I want the final painting to have so I'll be following it pretty closely.
