    Auction pick up

    I missed out on a nice large landscape oil painting at an auction Sat. but I did pick up a 2 pc. lot for almost nothing.
    Both amature pieces but worth hanging somewhere in the house to fill wall space.

    First is a large acrylic, 36" X 24" of a seaport. It caught my eye because it looks like it could be Mystic Seaport, Connecticut.

    Second is a small oil, 9" X 7" of a seine net trawler sitting at the pier.

    I like ^^^ that one - It has 'mood'.
    Some people have opinions - The rest of us have taste.

    Yeah, it reminds me of where I grew up. There were still fish shacks like yhat.
    The top 2/3 of the painting is very muted, but the blue in the water and red net drying in the bottom 3rd really draws the eye.
    The blue is a bit brighter in real.

    Love the 2nd one. I'd hang both on my wall. Good pickups.

    Yes, nice composition and colour in the second one.

    The first one does look a bit amateurish in comparison, especially with the pole cutting the picture in half.
