A Tangle of Tracks and Tenders

Great composition, good lights/darks and dashes of light Alix

Thanks, Pat. Being early autumn the lights/darks and dashes of light were there making life so easy for an artist! What wasn't easy was looking at all the ropes/warps and working out what went where! Quite a tricky painting even so because of the different conditions of the boats and especially the mould and water in the lefthand one - part in shadow, part transparent, part mould. Drove me a little insane!

Yes lovely viewpoint and great painting lovely light wonderful Alix and great gallery

A unique perspective Alix. Love the light and shade on the boats

Dennis and Adele, thank you so much for your comments. Feedback is so useful and can encourage when the artistic temperament is acting up!

Bold and brave contrast of light which as worked so well. The detail of the boats and ropes are excellent, a beautiful painting Alix.

Suzanne, what a lovely comment to start my day! I'm in Lisbon at the moment and there is so much to inspire artists that my mind is whirling!

Superb rendition of a lovely subject

Thank you, Derek - the master of such subjects!
