Watercolour Demo - 4 Boats at low tide
A curvy roundabout outside Coutras Railway Station, SW France

Small boats moored up along a jetty, Puerto del Rosario, Fuerteventura


Fuerteventura, Spain, 15" x 11".

A few small boats moored up along a jetty in the Puerto del Rosario.  Quite a tricky one with painting in the sea all in one go and cutting around the boat shapes ad trying to get the boat shapes 'right' with them pointing in different directions.  Thankfully the boats in the background needed less detail and they're just really lines, but it's the shape of the sea surrounding them that makes them appear as boats (hopefully).
