Dragon Boat Painting

Cat's Dragon Boat Painting is finished. Thanks to Brian McElaney for permission to paint from his photo. I used the reference after rotating and cropping it some. The drawing is straight from the photo with some details obviously omitted and simplified. I exaggerated the brightest parts of the photo to be yellow sunshine.

48" x 24" Oil on linen.
In a private collection.

Here is a time lapse of the work in progress:
