Second Phase of Mystrom Boathouse Commission

At this phase I spent time developing a dark background to contrast the light-colored sunlit siding of the boat house.  Layering dots of  acrylic paint creates a tactile texture, I think that is one reason I like to use pointillism.  Notice I’m only painting large blocks of color, anything with detail is left out.  Detail is something that I leave until the very end.  I’ve also enlarged the space on the dock with white paint in anticipation of adding the missing figures.  It is now mid-October and I finally had the chance to photograph the family members who were not present in July.
