This 12" x 16" Oil on Panel was completed in the morning in the company of Matthew and Mike. The day before was appalling and I got soaked ! So when I woke to find the sun shining I had to get out and paint. Both Matthew and Mike were keen to paint and we set up on Broadstairs Harbour. This place is steeped in history from Smugglers to Charles Dickens. We decided to paint the old wooden building out on the harbour, with its charactoristic leaning toward the sea. The long early morning shadows served to enhance the composition and together with the lamps add depth to the painting.
Our reward after a long hard mornings work in the studio of out doors.
