Porthleven, Cornwall, 15" x 11".
A loose style painting of Porthleven Harbour in Cornwall. Painting against the light reduces small boats to simple shapes. When painting boats in a row, I look for the shape of them altogether as a whole, especially those at the back, in deep contrast with the dark harbour wall. The background buildings to are simple shapes and it's easier to not think or draw them as separate buildings all joined up. Also, I used very few colours here, mainly ultramarine blue.
