This is the fireworks display at the end of Helford Regatta on Saturday August 26th and it is the "August" painting for my river project, I painted the fireworks two years ago in watercolour and in some respects I think I preferred the watercolour, it was difficult to do but splashier. This has bits that I like very much, I got the firework smoky atmosphere down on the far left where the little lamp glows. I also like the dimly lit boat shapes but some of it is just a bit too gaudy for me. However...its good to experiment, what do you think!
