Demo painting - Maine fishing harbour
Steps to the Fortress of Verrucola, Tuscany

Pulling ashore - Porlock Weir

Pulling ashore porlock weir

Porlock Weir, UK, 22" x 15"

This was a demo painting and I laid down some extra washes on this one - more than I normally do, especially in the bottom right to try and create the form of a rocky slope.  I decided to introduce a figure on the right with some movement.  I am not sure what the figure is pulling, but it certainly isn't the big boat.  Not too many colours were used.  Mainly cobalt blue and burnt sienna were the primary two.

Painted on Saunders Waterford Paper, 300 gms, NOT surface.
