Pencil A4

I have always enjoyed detailed work. The shells were from my little collection, I do try to restrict it to a small box, so find a new shells and one of the old ones goes back to the beach were I suppose they really belong.

This Tug has been up the river for a few years now and we were on our boat tied to the pontoon in front of her, while we were waiting for engine spares I couldn’t resist painting her in morning spring light.

Life on the River Fal Oil Painting

Life on the River Fal
Oil on Canvas 40” x 30”

I spend a lot of my time on this river during the summer. This is a small beach opposite Tolverne, (Smugglers Cottage). The figure is my Husband working on our skiff Kaos, (yes it’s supposed to be spelt wrong)! This painting was finished off with a series of glazes which resulted in a feeling of depth.
