Water colour and Crayon. These boats fascinated me. The harbour was full of them. All shapes and sizes with curved prows and cabins, some very ornate. I liked the plain wooden ones which were busy transporting goods and workers. I used burnt umber and sienna for the boat which is not painted. It was a lovely warm chestnut colour. The blue water, just outside the harbour made a pleasing contrast.
