Sailboats on Bellingham Bay

In keeping with the sailboat theme from last week, this week I’m attaching two prints I created of sailboats. These prints differ from last weeks post in that the technique I used on these two was a subtle watercolor. The scene is a rainy (drizzle, not heavy rain) day on Bellingham Bay. Both prints capture a subtle rainbow in the background. The technique and coloring reflect the look I saw on that day. No bright colors without full sun, but a more subdued peaceful mood with the light rain.

Bellingham Bay serves the town of Bellingham in the state of Washington. Bellingham is located just south of the Canadian Border and north of Seattle. It’s just one of the many places in the Pacific Northwest of natural beauty.

    Good Morning my Friend! They both are incredible. I do enjoy seeing the person in the first picture. It gave it a sense of realism. But the rainbows set of both so well.
    Happy week to you!

      Thank you very much Teagan!! After I finished them, I “sat” on them for a couple of weeks to see how I would feel about them at that point. They relayed the same look and feel I had when I saw this scene in person last October…have a great week and thanks for stopping by!!

    These are both perfect reminders of the Pacific North West. I experienced many mornings like this when we had our boat. I loved visiting Bellingham which was less than an hour from us.
