Ship Inn, Porthleven, Cornwall and the end of the Harbour


Porthleven, Cornwall, 22" x 15".

The Ship Inn, located at the mouth of the harbour, and the church on the other side of the harbour in the background.  Very often for greens, I have mixed yellow ochre and cerulean blue or cobalt turquoise.  It makes the greens a bit softer.  Also in this painting, I often am mixing colours in the wash as it is still wet - more so towards the foreground here.  The pub tables and chairs on the right, well they were 'picnic' tables, are very much understated.
