Old Barge
Photo by Miki Willa
I am always amazed at the things that inspire me to paint. Tom and I had to make a trip into town to the art store today and decided to stop for lunch at our favorite harbor side restaurant. Tied up to the pier directly in front of us was this old derelict barge. I couldn't resist the opportunity to get some reference photos. The rusts, greys, and golds were quite wonderful. I think this will work well for painting with analogous colors. Of course, the other diners, mostly tourists off the nearby docked cruise ship, were all wondering why I was taking these photos. They were all upset the normally watery tropical view was blocked. As they say, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
