Fishing Boat

When in Torbay last year I came across this small boat laden with fishing paraphernalia. With grapling hooks and harpoons, I can't imagine what sort of fish it's owner tries to catch.

Watercolour - 12"x9"

  1. Good handling of the shape of the boat - something which isn't easy to get right. The boat 'sits' nicely in the water as well.

  3. I love the way you've done the water in this one - so realistic. Everything in this painting looks very clear and crisp. There looks like some watercolour in there but also other media?

  4. Thank you guys, I appreciate your comments very much.

    Frank, I wish I'd used darker tones for the water in the foreground to provide more depth (depth of distance, not depth of water). But the only medium used is watercolour - nothing else.
