Old Timers at Tollesbury


Old Timers at Tollesbury, Watercolour on Paper, (10" x 14")
(After Sidney Cardew)

Its really been a long time since I picked up the brush last and so I thought I might as well copy a painting of an artist I greatly admire. I have a book titled "A Celebration of Marine Art - Sixty Years of the Royal Society of Marine Artists". It is a lovely collection of marine paintings including this lovely watercolour by Mr. Cardew. I hope I have been able to do some justice here. I hope to be more regular with my painting in the coming months and hopefully improve a bit too.
All comments and critiques are most welcome. Thank you all for stopping by.

Thanks Mohammad, I feel the sky should have been a little more blue for that kind of reflection. But as they say, we live and learn ;-)

Unfortunately I'm unfamiliar with Mr. Cardew's work, but this is a very fine piece of watercolor work in its own right. I really feel the vastness of space and presence of the ships.

(and look! your signature and accreditation is completely unobtrusive, up there in the corner ;-)
