The Ferry




One among the many transporters from Long Island in New York. At night breezy and comfortable. But it all depends on where you are sitting. On a summer day, enjoy the trip on the top level. You can see Connecticut on the other side. Your car is in good hands. And by the way, the Galley has a good breakfast if you pass by in the morning. Among other currency as the friendly bartenders. The name comes from the Irish reduced anglicized form of Gaelic fearadhigh, meaning “unknown name.” Most related to the old English verb ferian, “to carry.”  The Ferry/Transporter


The location of Port Jefferson is named after our President Thomas Jefferson. Founded by steamboat companies who built them.  On the other hand, the illegal consumption of alcohol such as rum became a problem for the authorities. Production was confiscated from 1921 to 1933. Now days is replaced with tourism and business.

Moreover, the winter shows metallic blue on the water. The boardwalk on a snow day cast shadows in various light purple and greens from its surrounds.  Exciting and full of surprises.  The Ferry/Transporter

Technical Approach

Further to say, the most complicated part of working on these specific subjects is the water which changes every second. I placed together different fragments into one image. then enhanced on large to small scales. Followed it by the first waterfront, poles second, steamboat third, and the sky in the back.

I use watercolor medium for its open and transparent pigments. It also gives the rigid mechanics a loose and more relaxing style. On the contrary to oil painting is luminous and spontaneous.  The Ferry/Transporter

Then it comes to the details from the water. Decisions have to be made to make it work. Such as, which direction the waves are moving. Also, its reflection is critical. This last one is what enriches the subject with hue variations.

The Bay

The Bay, Size 36″ x 90″ Oil on Canvas 2020

The Bay is located on the north shore of Long Island in Huntington, NY. Beautiful place with many subjects to explore.

To begin with, what caught my attention on this subject? Together with it, there were old chairs and decorations on the handrails. And just behind, In the first instance, there was glimmering like a diamond on the water. And the Bay grabbed me into its past and emerged as a dream. In a long not forgotten time. Suddenly I felt familiar and no longer felt alone. I wanted to catch this moment in the sunlight. Then I found stars in sparkling lines. but withal with the visual effect of recreating light within.



Moreover, painting water can be very tedious and thematic. Pattern, combined in layers, and the hues of the color are its core. With persistence and patience, it is approachable. It is exciting to experience sun-changing reflections. Whereas, to understand how it moves, I used zig-zag lines in repetition. Shapes in movement become uncountable. Indeed, the wind commands in which direction should go. What’s more, waves on the bottom, as they move up to the top, they diminish in size. Nonetheless, Every color around this effect has been lower in luminosity.  THE BAY/SEARCHING LIGHT

Furthermore, I mixed raw umber with ultramarine and viridian green. The handrail is in the center. Transparent blue enriches the whole panorama. And by mixing it with turpentine and oil. We can see layers behind the others. Additionally, to create a spark effect I lowered back the blue tonality. Then, I let the sunlight go through the other colors. THE BAY/SEARCHING LIGHT

At long last, sitting out there observing this was revitalizing and energetic. And I have just preserved it in this painting for you to enjoy it. Nature and life in its splendor.

Looking at my archives found this unfinished project. Above all creativity is no mix-up with insecurities. Perhaps this will be the best time to finish it using a conceptual approach. The sunsets are full of pure orange in the afternoons the white sand spark life in all directions. Likewise, The above drawing contains a lot of details. Positioned one next to the other. Air paintings are spontaneous in their continuous light changes. It is like roller coasting with the air. Hemoglobin runs high and this is a perfect moment to get the best out of it.

Let me acquaint you more with the area. The community forms a v form ending with the Atlantic Ocean from side to side. No wonder Sandy came in 2012 and devastated the neighborhood.
