Brad never finished this painting. This piece required Brad to do an extensive amount of work prior to starting the piece. As the photographs below show, Brad built the boat per the many sketches he drew in his journal. He wanted very badly to complete this work but he had another Phantom of The Opera painting he had to get done first for his publisher to release as a limited edition print. By the time Brad had a chance to work on the piece his inspirational drive on this work had dissipated.

Brad will from time to time need to take his vision that he has already sketched in his journal and build a set to see his vision come into being. Here he has set up his model in his studio in the cardboard boat he constructed and painted for this boat scene. The reflection you see in the water below the lantern was achieved by Brad laying down large sheets of Plexi Glass on the floor. The preparation for this piece took just short of two days.

Here you can see that Brad quickly built his boat out of cardboard, scrap wood and duct tape.
