pastel of boats thamesThis was a great subject but I had to clamber through mud to get to it. Managed to get mud all over my jacket. It was worth it though because this gap between Piper's wharf and the workshop boats made an interesting subject.

I did a sketch in pencil on site, and then this pastel study in the studio to see if it;s worth re-painting a larger version in oil or oil bar. I think it will be.
