"Tied Up"

"Tied Up" - Oil - 6" x 8" - $150

"I went for an unusual viewpoint for this scene north of Boston. By walking out on the dock, I could see the ship set against a beautiful sky and the historic buildings in the distance. What a lovely place to stroll. The pinks in the sky made a useful foil for the sails' masts." --- SFG


I used the masts of the ship to divide horizontal length of the painting by thirds. The vertical was cut into thirds by the horizon line. Such simple considerations will strengthen any composition.
