the amsterdam

Arches CP 300 gsm 9" x 12".

this morning we docked in st. kitt's; some folks went on the bus tour to a fort, jan and i walked around the town taking in the local color. or couleur.

then we lifted anchor and sailed out to a small cove for swimming. nearby the amsterdam, a sailing training ship, was anchored for the afternoon.

water is iron blue; i'm proud of the way i got the ripples in by stroking the paint with a moist brush just as it was about to dry. (the caribbean humidity was very forgiving.)
