"Autumn on Shrimp Boat Lane", 12x16, oil on masonite, Shem's Creek, Shrimp Boat Lane, Mt. Pleasant Island, boats, Charleston, marine art
This is a painting that I did a year or so ago and was never really happy with. So I took it out and worked on it a bit yesterday and corrected the errors.
It's always a relief to me to be able to take out a painting after a while and be able to figure out what went wrong the first time. It certainly helps me know that I am still progressing. I lightened up some of the shadows, especially on the fish house and corrected the drawing in a few places. I also noted that the value of the floating dock was too dark so I lightened that as well.
This is a painting of Shrimp Boat Lane on Mt. Pleasant Island near Charleston. Also known as Shem's Creek, it is a very colorful place with ample painting subjects for an artist!
