Looking for some exciting views, I looked out from a deck and spotted a blue boat sitting on a river bend. The sunlight was perfectly lighting the boat and trees above it. With the sky reflected on the water, I really liked the composition.
After about 2 hours of painting, I started hearing thunder in the distance. The painting was done in a fast pace. Soon it started pouring, so I had to stop and quickly pack up. Once I got in my car and looked at the painting, I was pleased with what I'd done.
