Artist's Description

Down in the pretty town of Christchurch (Dorset, UK), you walk along a promenade with ducks and swans on the river Avon on one side and the greenery of a park with a traditional bandstand on the other. At the end of the walk there is a little ferry that takes you across the river and a walk of a couple of miles out to Hengistbury Head (where I’ve painted the beach huts).

And it is just along from the little wooden jetty where the ferry leaves you, that this dredger is parked – next to a bank of reeds. I was particularly taken by the shed mounted on it, and felt the urge to produce this picture.

The details dictated pencil to me, but without colour its hard to see through the jumble of parts, hence I’ve drawn this in pencil with a wash of colour from watercolour pencils added on top. The reed effect was created with the help of a rubber.
