Boats in the evening light - an imaginary watercolour landscape painting by Steven Cronin

To be honest, I wasn't sure where this one was going as I just made it up as I went along. I felt more confident with it once I started putting the rocks in the foreground and the scene started to take shape. The boats are put in very simply but I think they work OK. - Buy the original paintings featured on this channel - Buy prints of the paintings featured on this channel - Buy DVDs featuring watercolour landscape painting demonstrations from the Watercolour Workshop channel - Join me at my Facebook page
