Well this is my very first attempt at painting since I left school some twenty some years ago !


I found an old sepia photo in a book of old Scarborough photographs from yester- year and thought I would have a go at painting it in colour.

It's far from brilliant, but I am very pleased with it. I'm not happy with the sky but that will come with practise !!

I was really happy with the boat, and especially the figures working on it.

I am practicing techiques now to try and develop some basic skills.

I welcome your thoughts and hints !

Its just great!!,
by: Eve

Being from the UK myself, its refreshing to see the UK from the eyes of a new artist. I have lived in the US for 20 years now. Keep practicing, I believe that art is art from the one who understands what is on the canvas. The colors are just perfect as they are. Thanks for the trip down memory lane.
