Low tide in Porthleven Harbour and a lone Fishing Trawler with reflections in the water


Porthleven, Cornwall, UK, 15" x 11".

Another Porthleven sketch, low tide again and one of the few small fishing trawlers based here.  A slither of water reflecting the bright sky and then the reflection of the boat itself.  The foreground is kept in deep shade as a contrast with the background in full light.  Then a touch of white gouache to paint in the masts and boat details.  Somehow I didn't get any figures into this one!
