This is a sneak peak at a painting I had started awhile back and had been waiting for a "quiet" time to be able to concentrate on the detail work which remained. This really isn't that "quiet" time but I wanted to get this painting finished to complete my series on the Fishing Nets and Floats. I painted yesterday and early this morning on this part of the painting. I still have a third of the painting left to finish so that is the "sneak" part of this. Look for the finished painting on this blog after the 30 Day Challenge is finished.
The dock at the Port at Saint Jean de Luz in France is one of those places which you always want to return to. We have been there twice now. It has the quaint resort town with a small port. The combined cultures of architecture, food, and art of both the French and the Basque communities is unique. Finally it has an historical attraction since King Louis XIV of France married the King of Spain’s daughter, Maria Theresa, in Saint Jean de Luz in June 1660. This royal wedding is one of the most important political marriages in France's history.
Sharing my paintings with others is one of the joys in my life. Educating others about how I paint and the media I use is very important and why I wanted to reach out through this blog. Hope you will add a comment about what you see.
