The Fish Shack
This fish shack has been a favorite place for me to paint. The structure tilts and is now missing some of its dockage. In this painting I composed a medium range view or belly button shot of the action. The value range puts a three dimensional world on a two dimensional surface. This is more difficult with this view than with a landscape or distant view. It allows for more ornamentation and detail but not the personal touch of the close up view.
