En Plein Air: Docked Shrimp Boats

I decided to paint the shrimp boats docked near Fort Myers Beach this morning. While it was busy on the water between the Ft. Myers Beach key and Florida mainland with people sailing or fishing in their boats or yachts, the shrimp boat dock was quiet. Since it was Sunday and nobody was working there, I had the whole place to myself. The weather was very cooperative with temperature in low 90s for the highest of the day and a little breezy. I purposely selected this day so that there wouldn't be lack of space for my easel. It took three hours altogether to finish it. Of course, I was painting out of the effect with the sun gradually moving to the middle of the sky. Hope you like it.
