Fishing net and chain. - Watercolour

This started out as trial piece for the net which I wasn't sure how to do - the real thing should be twice the size..... however since it took me two days for a 19 x 22 cms painting I'll have a long think before embarking on a bigger picture. Net and floaters on the quai at Loctudy where we went to buy fresh Langoustines ! (Dublin Bay prawns I think.)

My goodness, I can't imagine how difficult this was! But, a brilliant job once again. Beautiful colours and I love the rusty chain, and the net, and the rope .......! It's great!

Lovely Avril. You have an uncanny knack of making decay seem appealing. I wonder if I can adapt your technique to the morning mirror shave...

Beautiful colour and subject as always and beautifully painted, and I wish I had tasted those langoustines :)

This must have been so complicated to paint, but what a super painting it is so well worth the effort.

You have such a talent at finding merit in what others would probably pass over. Wonderful colours and you are the 'rust' queen! This makes such an attractive painting that I could see many people wanting to own it and have it on their wall.

Thanks Thea, your comment really made me laugh - ' la reine de la rouille' in French ! It's lovely.
