Dancing around Delphinius (SOLD)

This is the Delphinius docked in Wanchese Harbour. I start with a red stained canvas. I have spent a lot of time dancing around painting the letters DELPHINIUS. I had a painting class today. I painted this early this morning before the painters showed up. I have spent most of my time just on a few of the most difficult shapes. The bow line is always a deceptive shape.
Oil on canvas 12"X9"
(SOLD to a repeat collector)

I love that strong lighting too -- beautiful. The reds and rust colors are killer great. I see what you mean about the deceptive bow shape - seems like it would be just two flat sides but they angle in in strange places. You did a good job on it, looks solid.
