Rosebud in Picton Harbour

15" x 22", watercolour, 2016

I knew ever since I first laid eyes on her that I would one day paint this cute little boat.

Now, with this watercolour, I've painted Rosebud three times: once in oils as part of my 33 on 33 plein air project, and once in inks as part of my County 101 painting marathon.

This one's my favourite because you can see the boat better than in the oil painting and this is in colour, where the ink painting, while based on the same photo, is in black & white. The water was still and like glass that day, providing perfect mirror-like reflections.
