    Description

    In Annapolis on the water front there is a matching set of sandbagger sloops.  The Bear & The Bull.  These low slung, wide beam sailing vessels get their name from the use of sandbags as ballast.  Reproduced from boats of the 1800s these gaff rigged sailers still get out on the water and show us how its done!  Very fun to paint!

    Feels like I'm there

    Love the orange which brings the viewer through the scene from back to front and around again. Sharp edges give it a photographic quality while chunky strokes in the water soften the scene and make it more human. Love this painting.

    Depth Perfection

    Masterful use of color temperature to create sense of depth, distance, and the fullness of the sky. Hate to give 4 stars for originality; doesn't need to be original to be amazing but it is a landscape.
