Islington

Islington

8"x 8"  oil on panel

I cannot resist a boat sitting, waiting to be launched into the water.   This punt was resting on the wharf in Islington.  The lighting was diffused with sun just starting to show through and gave a pastel feel to the scene.

very nice light colours :) even tho the boat is just docked there it has a sense of movement to it, probably the angle it is leaning at, like it is about to fall.:)

The pastel scene seemed a bit insipid at first, but then the contrasts kicked in. Yes, there are so many boats propped up by a wing and a prayer I wonder how a stiff breeze doesn't send them toppling over!
