A little boat moored just off shore

A little boat moored just off shore, Oil on canvas, 11.5 x 9.8 cm; 54 US$ or equivalent.

This painting is much more blue-ish than appears here: the camera has some difficulty in catching certain tones.

Actually the picture is better than this photo suggests (I photographed it various ways and couldn't capture it satisfactorily). The reason for this is that one loses the animation of surface that the paint texture brings, and also because one loses the sense of scale: the picture is small and intimate.

Perhaps the image below is more satisfactory, conveying better the scale of my piece:

I shall lay out all the postcards and photgraph them together tomorrow, to allow comparsion, and show their different sizes.
