Dry yachts at Porthmadog, watercolour

You are a master of the shadow, Mark.

Great painting Mark!

Why do I get the feeling that the hardstand is sloping unnaturally to the left?

This is beautiful. Love the cool colours.

You are absolutely right Malcolm it does. I curved the shadow on the main yacht. It is actually very flat there. My feeling is that there is too much foreground anyway.

I feel the dark foreground adds to the drama of the piece...for what my opinion's worth!
