Fishing boats at rest in Newquay Harbour at low tide

Newquay_harbour_low_tide_fishing_boats

Watercolour of Newquay, 22" x 15" on Saunders Waterford Rough 300gms.

5 Fishing boats in a row at low tide.  Background was left very understated and cut around the tops of the boat cabins.  The perspective of the chains and ropes leading to the bows of the boats and channels of water draining away to sea hopefully helps the composition, and leads the eye in.  One of the last things I did was painting dabs of darkish paint on the harbour floor for the seaweed.
