Oh wow oh wow oh WOW. Am I ever glad I made it to that - aside from catching up with a lot of old friends, look what I brought home, without breaking the bank (in fact I didn't even put a noticeable ding in it)!!! Two of my favorite local tugs by two of my favorite local maritime artists, the Pegasus by Bowsprite, and the W.O. Decker by Frank Hanavan. I was doing a little happy dance all the way home. Well, at least in my head I was.
Great night, and it also got me to come home and do a little more on my own attempt at painting the Pegasus. I'd started in on this last week with a sketch of a picture I'd taken after Capt. Pamela had invited me on a ride from Red Hook up to Pier 40 in Manhattan. The sketch came out OK.
Then I spent the next two nights that I had to paint messing around with the water, then it was Easter weekend and we had a dog to take canoeing on Saturday and Easter dinner up in CT with TQ's folks on Sunday, no time for arts and crafts.
Tonight I came home from the Tug Art Show in the mood to do a little more, so I added in the red stripe of bottom paint, plus puddenings and passengers. And I messed around with the water some more, but I suspect I will keep doing that every time I have time to work on this. Here's where things ended up.
To be continued.
