A lovely subject to paint, it makes a difference with how colour saturated a subject is by where the sun is. This time the sun was opposite the view, recently I have been looking more into the sun, which takes out the colour and makes it more tonal.
I enjoyed painting the colours of boats, although quite complex with mixing each colour and then separate but connected colours for the reflections!
The boats were arranged in this composition although they moved about quite a bit on the incoming tide. I took out a couple of boats to make it more pleasing.
A family next to me were feeding the birds they were going mad for the bread, the swans didn't get a look in.
I have managed to finish and upload a speeded up video demonstration of the previous painting, have a look at number #295 for the 40 second video....
