Boats and Condos

Acrylic painting of boats and the condos at Erie Basin Marina in Buffalo, NY.
The original painting is available.
This is another view from the observation tower at the Erie Basin Marina. I used a zoom lens to get a closer view of the boat docks. What attracted me to paint this image is that it’s realistic and yet it has a number of abstract qualities. The docks created a number of patterns and I enjoyed painting the silvery reflective surface of the lake. The roofs of the condos create another pattern of shapes and the dark shadows create a strong contrast with the water.
