The Story

This painting was created on an overcast day on the dock of the Newcastle Marina. I wandered the marina for close to an hour before deciding on this cute little boat occupied by some locals. This boat was home to a young family, until they outgrew it and rented it to friends. The lot of them hang out on the back deck drinking and smoking cigarettes on brightly painted furniture under the Australian flag. This artwork was completed and photos taken with full permission from the owners.

Marina

The photo above is after the freezing rain, the clouds blew away and the sun beat down relentlessly (That’s Australia for you). Shared with permission from the owners. I sat on the wood of the dock in two layers of clothing and periodically hiding both myself and my painting under a small umbrella when the rains hit. When fatigue hit, I’d sprawl out flat on the dock. It rather amused the fisherman to see an apparently dead blonde girl in oversized paint covered overalls star-fishing the dock!

Materials

On this particular day I chose acrylic, as rain was forecast. Acrylic paint is water soluble, so one benefit is that the rain would refresh my palate and give me more working time, but also removes the risk of water getting underneath the oil and creating mould in the future. I use these canvas boards for plein air painting, as they fit perfectly in my Pochade for transporting when wet.

Method

This painting was created 50% plein air and 50% in the studio afterwards using a photograph from my phone as a reference. It was a difficult and complex subject, painted in difficult conditions (Rain, cold and heat!). So using the studio afterward was unavoidable. I spent 8 hours on the dock and 8 hours in the studio the next day to see this one completed. This painting has the recommended two coats of final varnish.
