Context and Inspiration

“Anchorage” is a work created in 2019. I capture a peaceful scene of boats at anchor, evoking the end of a mild and calm summer. The inspiration for this painting comes from quiet evenings spent by the water, where calm and serenity dominate.

Visual Description

The painting shows three anchored boats, their reflections emerging on calm water under a pastel-tinted sky. The background is dominated by soft shades of purple, pink, orange and yellow, creating a calming and serene ambiance. The boats, painted with precision in acrylic using a knife and brush, are lined up with their sails lowered, emphasizing the absence of wind and the atmosphere of tranquility.

Painting Techniques and Materials

I use acrylic for this work, applied with a knife and brush to create subtle textures and details. The reflections on the water and the nuances of the sky are rendered with great finesse.

Thematic Analysis

“Mooring” explores themes of tranquility, serenity and the beauty of simple moments. The symmetrical composition of the boats and the use of soft colors reinforce the idea of ​​peace and relaxation. It is an invitation to contemplate and appreciate moments of calm in nature.
