Another piece off the easel! This little oil is finished except for a tweak or two and a few lines on the rigging once the background is dry. It's inspired by one of the yachts I see in Opua - but it isn't a literal rendition. I often tell fibs about the color and light.  As the American impressionist, William Merritt Chase said:

"Just don't hesitate to exaggerate color and light. Don't be afraid to tell lies - the most tiresome pictures are the stupidly truthful ones".
