Full Moon At The Boat Cemetery

Full Moon At The Boat Cemetery
46cm x 37cm. 18in x 15in.
Oil on stretched canvas

“Recently I have been wandering at night, drawing and collecting information for a series of night paintings. This one is the cemetery of boats on the river Blavet just outside Hennebont. The full moon gave rise to a wonderful pallet of dark blues and purples. A distant field appeared to be a splash of pure cobalt. It is a beautiful place with the skeletons of old ships resting in the shallow water like fallen dinosaurs.”
