WIP – Canal boat of Dublin

Image

I am presently working on a new picture with a boat, but a different type of boat than usual. This is one of the canal boats that are located in Dublin city. On these you can book parties etc, they have a pub on board. I often walk by this boat in the morning on my way in to the office. And have often been thinking I would like to paint it. So, finally I have started to work on it. It is far from finished, but this is how far I have come so far. There are some buildings beside it, and the building I have painted so far is Hilton Hotel at Charlemont Str.

I am thinking about starting to work in larger format than A3, it feels like I have grown out that size in a way. I just want to try it to see how it goes. The boats in particular will be great to make in larger formats. I still have the classic cars in my thoughts, and have new ideas I want to put down on paper. But that will come later this summer perhaps this fall rather.

I am trying to combine my ‘normal’ day job with my art work, and so far it seems to work out well. Mainly it is the weekends I can concentrate on my art. And depending on the inspiration of course, but so far so good.

I will post updates as I go along on this picture so stay tuned. In the mean time please have a look at my other artwork at:Β https://www.facebook.com/EvaAsonArts

Have a fantastic weekend and hope the sun is shining at your end of the World.

    1. Thanks so much Betsy πŸ™‚ once I have mastered one thing I need more challenges and this one is a challenge to me because I haven’t really made boats sitting in an environment like this, with buildings, water and nature around. I am moving along as my inspiration guides me πŸ™‚ but I love it!!

  2. wonderful that you are trying larger sizes. I think some collectors really want a large piece for the wall, a statement, something easy to see from across the room. This is looking wonderful. Wishing you the best as you get your art out into the world.
