Third Phase of Mystrom Boathouse Commission

I’m abandoning pointillism to paint detail due to the size of the canvas.  If this were a big 3′ x 4′ piece it would be possible to paint the whole surface with dots, but this canvas is 14″ x 18″ and requires multiple techniques.  Detail work at this phase included squaring up windows and posts, adding grilles to window panes, porch rails, and blocking in figure shapes on the dock.

A close-up detail of the three figures and big, furry dog sitting on the dock.  I actually had to use a magnifying glass to help see detail in the figures.
