Small Boat, Bright Day, 5 x 7 " oil on gessobord, ©2015, Fay Terry
It's not always easy to capture the shape of these small boats, but it sure is fun to paint them.
I love painting water with the sun on it. We used to spend long afternoons in a boat like this fishing and crabbing in Little River, S.C. We tied fish heads onto a nylon string, put them over the side, and scooped up the hungry crabs with a net. Those were fun times when the family all gathered at the Big Landing House on the inland waterway.
