This was the first painting I started on the Wapping Group Wednesday (an esteemed group of London painters!)
I did a drawing in my sketch book to practise making the shapes as it was a tricky angle. I’d mixed all my colours and about to start painting when the skies opened. So I finished it at home in the dry of my studio. 
I actually found it harder inside as you can’t see the nuances of tone and colours. But saying that I’m really pleased with the boldness and strength of this painting. The owner of the boat talked to me that day and said he wanted to see the painting if it turned out ok. Let hope he likes it!
