Gorgeous! One of your best Lesley.

Many thanks Jim, Suzanne, Karen, Thalia, Clare and Sarah for your much appreciated comments :)

Super duper lovely water, this is so cleverly painted. Terrific.

That water looks very tempting Lesley......wonderful piece.

Yes that below water shadow is so enticing Lesley, cool looking and all crystal clear. Beautiful as always xx

Lovely Lesley hope you are well and still madly painting!!

Lovely work Lesley, that water is very tricky to work out in your head, but you seemed to have nailed it!

very clever use of the different blues; love it.

Fred, Fiona, Carole, Margaret, Linda, Frank and Matthew, many thanks for all these encouraging comments :) Yes Linda, still madly painting, currently en plein air in Sennen, Cornwall! Hope you are well too x

Hang on Studio Wall

I love it when the sun throws a shadow of the boat onto the sandy bottom beneath the water, it give a sense of depth. I find some people can confuse the shadow and the reflection. In this painting there is both shadow, reflection and shadow in the reflection, so quite a lot going on.

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!
