Swirling Currents

A recent maritime themed gouache painting; thicker than usual for the whites, some active scraping with a palette knife for texture in the foreground. Thinking a bit about the French painter Eugene Isabey ( 1803-1886 ) here. It's been a while since my last post! I'm looking forward to contributing more studies on this blog, time to get busy.  

5"x 7" watercolor & gouache on hot pressed paper. * note - burnt sienna underpainting using transparent washes.
