These are two small 220 x 160 Jullian Pochade plain air studies recently
Painting and canoeing for the day, when I was tired of one I did the other. My son Barnaby was with me enjoying the first trip in the boats for 2012.
The top image is a little way from the Hythe Imperial towards the Fisherman's beach. Painted in just over an hour. Crowds of people enjoying the sunny day, filled the scene with colour.
The lower image, painted at the end of the day, was further along towards fisherman's beach. A couple of dog walkers entered the scene, and found their way into my painting.
