Yachts at low tide - Exmouth #3

Exmouth esturay boats at low tide 3

Exmouth, Devon, 15" x 11"

A third study of some boats at low tide in a small inlet on the estuary.  A little bit of wet in wet on the reflections - you have to make sure the second paint you are adding is a slightly thinker consistency and the first wash is not too wet.  Just a very simple rendition of the background shapes of the warehouses (almost abstract) and use of some white gouache for highlights, masts and ropes.

Painted on Saunders Waterford, Cold Press, 300 gms.
