52Frames Water Week 33

52Frames set the challenge of Water this week, and I had thought of doing something completely different, but ended up doing this seascape in watercolour.

I have been watching the programmes about the Rolling Stones and really liked the tour sketch books done by Charlie Watts. I thought maybe I would do some little black and white drawings to show all the things in the house that used water; tap, shower watering can, loo etc. Still like the idea as something to do in the future, but decided on a watercolour sketch of a beach in Pembrokeshire, in the evening.

The sea is the main feature in all areas of this image (except the sky). There is the ocean, the wet beach and the little pools around the rocks with thier reflections. The container ship adds some narrative but I dont really like how it is almost exactly in the middle of the picture. I think the shadow could have been a bit bolder and darker, but did not go over it as I was pleased with the wash itself and the pools left behind. Experience is now telling me that it will not like being overpainted. Just remember next time paint dries lighter!

I really like the rocks and the pools and think the sea and beach quite successful too. It may benefit by being cropped, but I am contuining to put up the imges as thye are.
