Painting boats

Just had a few sunny days in Sanary Sur Mer. It made me realise I have a boat fettish! This pretty little port full of colourful boats bobbing gently in the Mediterranean is a perfect place for the artist who likes a boat or two on their paper or canvas. And they all have wonderful names, like Irene, Jeremy, Sophie and La Romance just to name a few.

I sat and sketched and started a watercolour that just needs a few finishing touches. I'll share it over the next few days. It made me think, how much I do enjoy painting water and boats they do make interesting subjects. 
My Online watercolor course features two easy step by step projects including boats 'Red boat Windermere' shows how a splash of colour in a tonal moody landscape can give real impact and 'Turquoise Waters Annecy' uses lots of different masking techniques and wonderful bright complementary colours.
