Waiting for the Tide
Watercolour on Paper
55cm x 35.5cm (21.5" x 14")
I’ve been meaning to paint this collection of boats for some time. They are in the harbour at Wells-Next-The-Sea. The distinctive Granary building is directly above them.
I kept putting this picture off because of the painting of Brixham Trawlers that I included on my first post (The Natural Way To Draw).
The Brixham painting is one of my favourites. It was the first time one of my paintings exceeded my expectations.
I was reluctant to paint another harbour view in the same style because it is time consuming and I was worried I might not be able to repeat the experience.
I’m not sure this is a better painting, but it demonstrates some improvement in technique.
