The River Stour, Sandwich (An April Evening)

Lovely painting, Tony.

Thanks Seth, I have been thinking about painting this boat for some time, but only recently caught the right combination of tide, wind (lack of) and light. I was in 2 minds about leaving in the rather odd shaped reed bed in the fore ground; it framed the boat well in the photograph I took, but I never really got it right in the painting.
