Sterling Boat: FINAL

Sterling Boat
oil on panel, 9 x 12 inches

Finally finished! It ended up taking about 16 sessions over the course of a month, for a total of 68 hours, including the initial contour drawing. Thanks to everyone who has followed along the last few weeks as I posted all the stages of this painting, it been an interesting experiment to document the process so closely.

Here's a slideshow of all the stages of this painting:

This painting will be in my March show at M Gallery in Sarasota, Florida. The show will coincide with my painting workshop, March 22-26, also hosted by M Gallery.

I've just added Still Life Painting classes to my San Francisco teaching schedule. I'm thinking about offering a drawing course for absolute beginners later in 2010, if this is something you'd be interested in please email me.

Finally, my new studio is coming together and I'm looking forward to posting photos soon, stay tuned!

It's beautiful! I really, really love the wood at the front with the paper stretching in front of it. Thanks for sharing your process, it was really interesting to watch.

This work looks amazing especially here in this final stage. There's been a definite change and Its shocking how much color seems to be present. I have enjoyed watching the progression, thanks for sharing.

Looking forward to your class schedule expanding I am definitely interested.

This is wonderful. I love the soft light and the mood it creates. I think you may be suffering some distortion in the photo you took though. The table looks a bot bowed and I am sure you didn't paint it that way. Perhaps you need to use a longer lens when taking these photos?

I love everything about this: the glow of the paper, the texture of the wood, the luster of the shell, and particularly the artist's reflection that seemed to be the final element. Brilliance.
