Composing at Sea

I spent about two hours on deck reading from Edgar Payne’s book, Composition of Outdoor Painting, today. He has a concise way of describing many of the things that I’ve been doing intuitively for years and it gives me a sense of control and direction that is very reassuring. I owe my uncle Jim many thanks for giving me this book.

We will arrive in Barcelona on Wednesday morning and I am very excited to see land. I can’t wait to explore and do some outdoor drawings. Until then, I’ll continue sketching around the ship and creating watercolors. Here is another in my series of invented compositions. I think my longing to be on dry land is starting to come through.
