“Purple Sailboat” is an art print I am featuring from my Lighthouse/Nautical Gallery. The print is done using a subtle watercolor technique of a sailboat. This style creates a soft whimsical look not getting lost in the detail, but creating the concept of a sailboat gliding across the water on a warm summer afternoon. To further enhance the look and feel of the scene, I went with a soft purple to compliment the blue and green hues of the surrounding landscape and lake. The overall look is warm and relaxing with just a touch of fun.
The setting for this particular print could be any lake or shoreline, but is in fact Lake Union in Seattle, Washington and it is a warm summer afternoon.
I invite you into the Lighthouse/Nautical Gallery to view additional art prints.

As a follow up to last weeks post, I mentioned that I had added a number of new art prints to my Landscape Watercolor 3 Gallery. I posted a few of them and this week I am posting a few more. The watercolor prints this week are done in different style. Last week, those watercolors were based on more simple abstract drawings. This week the watercolors are done using very detailed, precise drawing and sketching. With Sail Boats as a subject matter, notice the complexity of the drawing as it pertains to the masts and the boats in general.
The first picture is from a public park at the end of a harbor in a small New England Village……
Notice the detail not only in the boats, but in the trees and the buildings within the village.
The next picture is a different angle within the same harbor….
The red maples pull the eye to the shoreline of the village, but the focal point remains the boats…..
The next print is of a sail boat along the coastal waters of New England…..
Our eye goes to the sail boat initially, then to the very large home on shore. The trees and the water frame the two focal points.
Our next print stays with the sailing along the coastal waters…..
In this print, the homes along the shore become much more of the background than the prior print and the sail boat takes center stage.
This next print continues with this same setting….
The use of detailed drawing with these watercolors change the look entirely from last weeks set. The nautical theme is augmented with the distinct detail of the environment.
The style of the print and the media used changes the entire look and feel of these pictures. Pictures are meant to enhance a decor and create a look, feel and vibe. That look and feel is yours and there is no right or wrong in my opinion.
