Nocturnal Experiment

Au tums Sleep 8x10 oil on board

I decided to go out last night in search of painting subjects. I have been inspired by Marc Hansen's nocturne marathon this month and thought I would go out and brave the darkness. I have done some nocturne pieces before and it always proves to be a fun and educational experience. For this one I drove to the marina and was struck by these two friends, freshly pulled from the lake and awaiting winter storage. I am going to try to improve the lighting on my surface next time so that my values improve. But, all in all I am satisfied with this attempt.
