Old Fishing Boat


Old Fishing Boat, Watercolour on Paper, (14" x 20")   

Hello friends, its been really sometime since I have been able to produce something worth putting up here on my blog. I made this from a few old sketches I made from the below mentioned reference. I think the slant of the boat shape draws us into the painting and so perhaps make up for the imbalance in the composition. 

I think, for a change, I am satisfied with this one, and I would really love to know your opinion on this. So please do leave a comment. :)

I am really happy to see youhappy with one of your paintings! And I agree, I think the shape of the boat, and the angle of it facing us really makes for a dynamic composition.
