Tidal Gate to Porthleven Harbour in Cornwall - a bit of everything


Porthleven, England, 15" x 11"

The very robust tidal gate at the entrance to Porthleven Harbour in Cornwall.  Lots of angles and different perspectives on this and it has a bit of everything - houses, figures, boats, reflections... Also what was interesting was the many different colours in the harbour wall in shade which went very dark down towards the water's edge (quite a lot of Ultramarine Blue and Burnt Sienna for that!).  Out to the left is the wild Atlantic Ocean.

Absolutely love that Tim!! How long from start to finish did it take you?

I would love that or something like it, to be one of the paid tuition videos you create!!

If I could paint like that I would be a happy man!

Thanks very much John and this took about 90 minutes including drying time. Good idea about the topic for next session and thank you
