Plein air painting 14

 Plein air painting 14

marine still life painting Southampton Davey

This plein air oil sketch shows a mundane view of a couple of lifebuoy rings, one much larger than the other, on a mooring post. The location is a boat yard on the banks of the River Itchen, in Southampton, Hampshire. When the painting was started the weather was sunny but later started to rain so it had to be abandoned. I made a note of the time it was done and the sunny weather and came back a week or two later when the weather was the same, and at the same time so as to complete the sketch. It is painted on a piece of primed mounting board during September 2020.
