When I started this painting I knew that it was going to be difficult because of all of the complicated boat shapes. What make them difficult to paint is that they’re all white or off white which means that I have to create those shapes with a limited range of values (the value of a color refers to how light or dark it is). It’s much easier to define shapes if there’s a sharp edge with contrasting colors and values, such as a dark blue shape next to a bright yellow.
