Safe Haven

Safe Haven
Soft pastel on Murano paper
16x12 inches

This was a sail boat moored up in Musselburgh harbour along the road from me. Made sketches and took some reference shots. I've simplified the scene (removing other boats that distracted) and played with the composition a little to make sure the placement of horizon and mast sit on the 'golden mean'.

Plan to work this up into oils later

Haven't posted in a while as my PC finally died and had to be replaced!
