Daily painting Maine - Day 9 Repairing the Alice Jane

Day 9 of  Leslie Saeta's 30 paintings in 30 days challenge

Just off the easel this morning! 
I began this as a plein air painting, (one of my largest attempts) but just couldn't finish it in the field.  I really enjoy painting these boats out of the water as much as the ones I paint in the water.  This was at the Front Street Boatyard in Belfast, Maine.  They always have a lot of repairs going on so I can easily find something to paint.

Repairing the Alice Jane
20"x20"
The variety of reds and oranges attracted me to the scene plus the abstract patterns of the color patches. Most enjoyable painting.
