Landscape Watercolour of Dartmouth, 15" x 11".

Another sketch of the 'Inner Harbour' in Dartmouth Devon, looking towards St Saviours Church tower and the row of Georgian houses at the back of this small square harbour.  As regards composition, we have a couple of foreground figures walking their dog into the centre (rather than away from the centre), behind that a group of small boats.  Getting a dark shadow across the top of the boats is probably an easy way of defining the tops of all those vessels quickly, rather than spending ages on little details.  The shadow towards the right was painted into a wet wash to give a softer look.
