Ripples on the water

Red Ripples II, 5 x 7", watercolour, July 2010

This is one of a series of small boat paintings that I did recently.  This one is now available at BlueFin Pottery and Hand Creations on Water St in Digby.  It is one of the many scallop boats which sail out of Digby.  I wanted to capture the ripples in the quiet water without fussing about the peir too much.  The two green pillars that you see in the painting are actually supports for a new floating dock system which rises and falls with the tide.  Thus they are very tall to allow for our 20 foot plus tides.
