The original painting is for sale. This dilapidated row boat can be found along the shores of Lake Ontario, it was placed there for decoration. There's also a lighthouse nearby. I used Phthalo Green for the peeling paint on the boat, and warm grays to give the impression of sun bleached wood. The shadow of the house worked out great, it provided a dark green color to contrast with the far edge of the boat. I used gouache to dry brush some grass textures in the foreground and to create a few bold brush strokes.
