Kayaking around Belle Isle on the James River Oil Painting

Kayaking around Belle Isle on the James River

Oil on Linen                   18 x 24 Inches                   $2200 Framed

This 18 x 24 oil was painted mostly as a plein air painting on the walkway under the Lee Bridge to historic Belle Isle in the James River in Richmond, Virginia. I had to leave early for another commitment, so I went back to finesse it in the studio and add more flecks of suggestive people sunbathing on the rocks in the distance, the kayakers, and trees/foliage growing up from the rocks and islands. It's encouraging to constantly get compliments from all the passerbyers on their way to or from the island. My favorites are when I've just barely started, and yet good-natured people generously compliment my nearly blank canvas.
