A Cornish Boat Trip

 Instant sketches, about as fast as a camera, done from the boat as we sail up the river the other evening. These probably take under two minutes each, its more about looking and thinking in shapes.
 Leaving Helford River, these little cottages are at Helford Passage under some large Scots Pines, iconic Cornwall
 Its Wednesday evening and the 707's are about to race, they jockey about waiting for the start.
 There were two boats here but moving, us and them so the scale changed too fast but the shapes of the sails are interesting.
Looking back into the sun, sparkling water, the trees make solid shapes and the oyster boat is a shape in the white light.
