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.
