Up For Repair
Last summer was a hot one in Dublin! There was alot of activity in the harbour too. I didn't want to miss the opportunity to paint this scene. A real artists treat - to see men working on the trawlers. I did a prelim (preliminary) tonal value sketch first. The sky was fluffy in appearance, deceptive to paint in full sun. Over emphasizing the sky and sea you can 'loose' the painting; i tried to compliment everything collectively.
