The White Boat

Fantastic! The shallow water has been painted brilliantly.


Good format, suits this painting Lesley.

Lovely clear water and boat Lesley. The format works very well here.

You certainly know how to paint water!the transparency is so convincing Wonderful Diana

Beautiful work Lesley the light is wonderful , it's rare I paint portrait myself this works beautifully in portrait

How clever Lesley, how do you manage to get the water to actually look real. Well painted

A smashingly accurate and precise depiction.

This is outstanding. You really do capture water perfectly.

Ooh that water looks so cool lapping up to the shore . I really love your work Lesley its superb such a lovely delicate touch . l wanted to try and paint a boat scene as you inspired me but I can't find any decent reference material . wonderful work

Probably your best water ever, Lesley. Fantastic!!

Another fantastic piece of painting Lesley, water superb as always in all your boat paintings, like this one.

Lesley so realistic its brilliant

Many thanks for such wonderful comments, I'm very, very grateful. Glad you think the format works :)

Hi Lesley. Great depiction of water, warms and cools, the reflections are superb, deep yet still transparent. Lovely.

Beautiful! I can almost feel the water....

Hang on Studio Wall

25 x 30 cms oil on canvas. An old smaller painting revisited, and painted on canvas with a format change. I don't often paint 'portrait' but it seemed to be the answer for this scene.

Lesley Dabson

I love to paint water, with boats, buildings or simply the water in oils. I'm a regular at life drawing sessions where I usually get covered in charcoal!
