Last Light, Pendennis Point


Last Light, Pendennis Point.
Watercolour
50 cm x 40 cm or 20 inches x 16 inches
Out in the Falmouth Bay as the sun was setting, St Anthony Lighthouse silhouetted against a yellow shot sky, Pendennis Castle rendered down to a smudge of russet guarding the entrance to Falmouth harbour. The sea becoming inky silk by the minute.

Great result on this, in fact it's difficult to paint dark watercolors, but you did it and having wonderful white reservations

absolutely beautiful - evenings and early mornings are so interesting to paint and you've caught this perfectly :>)

I love your poetic descriptions as well

gorgeous! love the colors you have been using in water anyways, but when I scrolled back to this... the colors and the sense of light with the big sparkly area just stopped me in my tracks :)
