#74 Tide Coming In' 7x9.5"
This painting I did on the second day of the weekend workshop I just did in Harwich. I was working on shapes and being looser with my mark making.
The tide was coming in very quickly, I had to move all my gear up the beach several times as the water was lapping at my feet!
As the tide came in the boat ungrounded itself and drifted around, not helpful but I had thankfully got most if it in by then.
It was bitter cold with a north wind coming off the sea. See photo below :-) I completed the painting in an hour and forty minutes, a lot faster than usual, helpful when its cold!
I am pleased with the outcome being a zoomed in composition and strong shapes, I probably would have had all the boat in before, so it's great to have influence from another artist.
