Here is the start:
I paint alla prima.... which means "in one sitting". So I usually start and finish in one day. Sometimes, though, I will do this first part of the block in the day before and resume the painting the following day. Often I do this so that I can have several paintings going at once.
Here is the finished painting. Don't you love the way those two boats are snuggled up together!
