I used soft pastels on a small sheet of pastel paper to do this plein air painting of a houseboat at low tide at Mersea Island on the Essex coast of England. This was Bank holiday Monday and I got up quite early to get the sun at this angle. A little later and the "heads" on the right which here is in shadow would have been lit up by the sun - and I liked it just the way it is shown here.
