Harbour side view down to 5 boats at low tide - Porthleven Harbour, Cornwall

Porthleven, Cornwall, 15" x 11".

One of my last paintings on some old T H Saunders watercolour paper.  I will miss it and difficult to come by in the UK now.  Well the subject here is a view high up on the harbour wall down to 5 boats at low tide.  Somehow, I managed to get in every colour imaginable into the harbour floor.  While still damp, I lifted out the reflections of the two left hand boats and added some lemon yellow to the middle boat reflection.  White gouache was used for rigging and boat details.
