The main focus of this painting is color. I used the darkness of the clouds and shadows on the docks and rocks to frame the focal point, the boat. I used a bright warm yellow color for the boat to contrast the cooler darker tones in the rest of the piece. To maintain balance I used the same shade of yellow in the boats reflection and in the highlights of the clouds. The purpose of this piece was to take a beautiful boat and use color, contrast, and pattern to make it interesting and give it voice.
