Boat Yard - Watermouth Bay, Devon

Shipyard watermouth bay

Watermouth Bay, Devon UK,  Watercolour, 15" x 11"

The small boatyard at Watermouth Bay in North Devon.   Not a large boatyard, but in a very pretty location which I have painted a few times (especially the lifeboat at low tide).  The boatyard runs up to the left.  In front the ground slopes down to the sea, way over to the right.  I tried to make a feature of the rocky foreground here and a small stream running under the pathway.

Painted on Saunders Waterford, Cold Press, 300 gms.

3 Boats, Kingswear, Dartmouth

3 boats kingswear dartmouth

Watercolor 15" x 11"

A bit of an imaginary one this.  Just taking the outline of some buildings and loosely basing the composition on a view towards Kingswear on the other side of the river Dart from Dartsmouth.  I'm going for a fairly calm scene here and a touch of bright light ober in the distance to the right.

Sunrise, Inner Harbour, Dartmouth

Dartmouth, Devon, Watercolour, 15" x 11"

I'm doing a lot of pre-wetting the paper at the moment, to get a soft glow to light in the sky and the reflection in water.  So here I applied to a scene I have done a few times before - the inner harbour in Dartmouth, Devon.  I don't normally do a red sky, but went for a bit of atmosphere in this one and keeping it loose.

Demo Painting to Bristol Art Group - Kingswear, Devon

Kingswear devon demo to bristol art group t

Kingswear, Devon, Watercolour, 15" x 11"

A recent demo to a local art group and an exercise in perspective.  This is Kingswear in Devon, with a road on the left going uphill and a road on the right going down to the ferry station on the river.  Plus added complication of the buildings in the middle ground and the other side of the river (Datrmouth town).  Tricky.
