In the Lead

This is the first of what may be a much bigger gallery in the future. Having seen the maritime work of a local artist I joined the art group she belongs to in order to learn and practice how to use watercolour (as apposed to gouache) and how to paint the sea ! This is my first attempt and although it is presentable I know I have some way to go before I can do it without reference to the help of other artists….! Since it is all about more practice I intend to paint some more maritime subjects over the summer so we will have to wait a while to see any evidence of further progress especially in the rendering of rough seas!
