Dawn in the Harbour

Dawn in the Harbour

Super boats Thalia, I do like this style of oil painting.

A very different feel to this one Thalia, no blazing Maltese sunshine! Good detail on the resting boats though.

You paint these boats so well, Thalia. This is excellent.

Lovely dawn light to this Thalia, very atmospheric.

Tremendous feeling of a dark night in a harbour, Thalia!

Love the early, eerie light of this Thalia. Life just about to spring into daylight. Those patches of red really work well.

Always lots of interest Thalia, and boats of course..(-:

Beautifully calmn. A set of Boats on the front are not just only boat, to me, but also show sort of the personality of each them, like a couple of human beings stationing together.... .

Great colours Thalia.

Good painting with atmosphere, Thalia.

Thank you very much, Alan, glad you like the style. Thanks Stephen, It was dawn, and the boats had just returned with their night's catch, no sun today either!!! Thank you Lewis, very kind of you, they're fast disappearing as no one wants to spend time and money renovating them. Shame! Thank you Tessa, yup, that was just what I was after! Thanks, Margaret and Satu, and yes, they're supposed to draw the viewer around the whole picture, Carole...that's my excuse as I love Cad red deep!!!!Lol! Thanks Jim, kind of you! Yoko, thanks, yes they take on a life of their own, in fact when I see one particular 100year old neglected boat I have been known to cry over it! [Daft old woman I am!!!] Thanks Emma a kind comment!

Thank you Cesare...I guess boats are my favourite subjects, and it shows!

Your boats are always so good and these are super, I like the dark colours.

Hang on Studio Wall

I was getting withdrawal symptoms as I haven't painted a boat for a while!! This was painted in oils from a photo, I had painted it in watercolours a while ago. Painted over another quite dark oil sketch, I resisted the temptation to place much detail in the far right and left out the huge ferry! What attracted me to the central boat was the light shining through the old bucket!!
