I am drawn to the boat yard, the abstract shapes of rope and chain, shadow and light and all those different surfaces and textures. Early on a Sunday morning, when all good folk are still enjoying a cup of tea in bed, it is the most peaceful place to sit and draw, just the sound of gently lapping water and the birds waking up.
Now, I have documented the progress of this painting and over the next few days I will make an attempt to explain my working process. I may not get through the whole thing in one post, it may be spread out over a few days and of course my fellow watery artists may be posting their watermarks in between, but, I can promise that over the next few days I will tell you... The how, the why and a bit of waffle along the way.
So tune in to Watermarks to catch all the thrilling installments!
Oh yes, I really want to know what you think of this painting as I may try and get it into a dreaded jury chosen art exhibition, what do you think?
