The red boat

The red boat

It is amazing how a touch of red really lifts a painting. The boat is wonderfully set off by the dark and glowering hills and the millpond smoothness of the water. Lovely work.

As well as the boat, the foreground colour looks good against the water.

Many thanks Thea and Louise.

Lovely scene well imagined and painted.

Agree with Thea - that little red boat completes the painting beautifully. Well done, Stephen!

Many thanks for your kind remarks Derek and Seok.

Hang on Studio Wall

A quick sketch from imagination, I added the red boat for a bit of Impact.
