Morning Motoring

24×18″ pastel on paper

When I go out in a motorboat first thing in the morning my senses seem heightened. I notice the sound of the wake sloshing against the spartina even with the hum of the motor. I can almost smell the salt air and feel the cool breeze that requires a hot cocoa. I played up the blues in this painting to enhance that feeling.
