acrylic painting - 'Twin propellers on blue boat'

This marine based piece of artwork was created in May 2018 and painted in acrylics on stretched water-colour paper, sized at 16” x 12”.
It is based on a photo taken one morning at a local boat yard, and the subject was a boat resting on jacks out of the water awaiting refurbishment. The blue hull, which was rusty, and the propellers showed lots of deposits from marine life living on the boat exterior, and gave the propellers an interesting blue cast. The day was sunny some it was interesting to see the light playing over the complicated forms of the propellers blades.
The picture can be seen here on this link.
