Boats on the Hard

14 x 21 in  -  35 x 53 cm     Watercolor     To my eye this one comes out as "too bitty" and so not enough unity. As the right side is so busy I should have kept the sky as a more solid wash. There are lots of other strengths and weaknesses but they sort of cancel each other out out and leave me thinking - well ought to do better.

To the right is the ref and below is the John Yardley painting I have shown before.

It is of almost the same scene but John was standing more to the right that I was when I took my reference photo.

A John Yardley Painting
As you can see John's work has such wonderful unity.

'Keep practicing' is what I must keep telling myself.
