Sinking and Burning the Boat

Very excited to be at this point in the painting. I prepped & “sunk” the boat last night. A beautiful day at 46°F to spend under the sky. I have my work cut out for me now.

Video can bee seen at my Instagram.

The Boat

Today I’m getting a start on weathering the boat keel for the current painting. Next I’ll prep/mount the cladding. Eventually I’ll submerge the whole thing in water, freeze it, put it in the oven & start it on fire (among other things) before placing it in the painting.

 

Progress

I started this painting more than two years ago and am at last beginning to see its outcome.

Today I’m checking the proportions and relationship between the wooden boat and the painted surface. Long way to go on each, but I’m very happy with how things are turning out.
