I missed this being posted, Roger. I had a go at this as well (look under gallery name 'Thea' if you want to see how I got on - not good sadly!) Really like your boat and the variation in colour of the hull. I think your drawing of the boat is very good and it looks solid and real. I think it was a very difficult scene to do successfully as there wasn't that much interest and all that dark harbour wall was daunting. Like your water as well - looks deep and dark as harbour water should. Well done.

My effort for the October project - quite a challenge as I don't very often paint boats as a subject. I used watercolour and masking fluid for the whites, but had to use opaque white in some places. Also decided to give a closer view and omit the smaller boat. Size of painting was A4.
