oil on MDF
This is a scene from the shopping/dining district in Manteo - which is about two square blocks. This is a more complicated scene than I usually undertake, and it's always a bear trying to decide what to leave in and what to take out.
I've been using some wonderful reference photos lately - taken by the crew/owners of s/v Ortolan. I found their sailing blog while searching for something or other, and it's packed with great photos of their travels. They were kind enough to let me use all the photos I want. Thanks!
