Sunlit roofs and two fishing boats - Porthleven Harbour, Cornwall, UK


Porthleven, Cornwall, UK, 15" x 11"

The inner harbour in Porthleven on an early winter's day and some low light coming in.  The foreground had quite simple treatment - mostly with the side of a big mop brush  and with rough paper, dragging the brush lightly across the surface gets that effect.  Odd light patches remaining can be turned into a stone with a bit of shadow underneath and to one side.  The background buildings were simplified - just a few strokes leaving out some highlights to give the impression of random roof tops reflecting some light.
