Tiburon Fireboat

A piece for an upcoming group show called Marinscapes, an annual fundraising event in Larkspur CA on July 2-4. This is acrylic on canvas. Am getting more comfortable using Golden's Open Acrylics. I do an underpainting with traditional acrylic and finish with the open paint. I can achieve the blending and brushstroke look of oil without the hassle of solvent disposal that comes with using oils. I'm working on a portfolio of art for kids books and after that it's time to get a little nutty and try some ideas that I've been seeing in my head--look out! A link to the Marinscapes event:
