I have changed the foreground of Close to shore I felt that the rocks were too bright for the piece and pulled the eye away from the main subject. So, I have put the rocks underwater and feel that the main subject, the boat now stands up on its own without any distractions.
This painting is Windsor and Newton mixed media: watercolour and gouache on 300 gsm Arches stretched watercolour paper. Image size: 54 × 72cm
