Painting The Marina, Downtown St Petersburg, Fl.

Downtown St Petersburg, Bayshore Drive & 2nd Ave

This is not an "electric" is actually the name of a marina downtown St Petersburg on Bayshore Drive & 2nd Ave. There is something deliciously tropical about this area...words can't describe it, but perhaps this painting will.
My favorite part of painting this scene was the turquoise sailboat and how it complimented the sky. I teach painting workshops and always tell my students the importance of choosing a scene that absolutely charms you as that is what will inspire you to do your best. That's how I felt about this one.
