Watercolour Paintings - boats in the harbour - St Ives, Cornwall

"Between the Shadows", St Ives, Cornwall.

A moment of luck presented this view as the passing clouds cast a shadow over the distant hill, which is covered with some of cottages and hotels that make up St Ives, a bright strip of sunlight on the middle distance, highlighting the boats and the buildings around the church and pier, while the foreground, has the mixture of cast shadow from the main pier (to the left) and the ribbons of water as the tide slowly went out.

By no means an easy subject but a real joy to paint. I hope, time allowing, to produce a large oil of this subject.
