Day 3 - 30/30 Challenge - Abandoned

$35, watercolor, 6" x 6"

I came across this boat on an afternoon walk after a snowfall at a nearby marina. I am always drawn to derelict and forgotten structures, old buildings, old cars and old boats. This boat has likely been in this spot, abandoned and forgotten, since Hurricane Sandy.

This the third painting the January 2014, 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge. It is watercolor on 140lb cold press Arches watercolor paper. I used a limited pallet of only four colors, quinacridome gold, alizarin crimson, burnt siena and prussian blue.
