Breaking Waves at Wick Harbour

"Breaking Waves at Wick Harbour" - watercolour - 18 x 26 cm

Another painting of waves. Wick harbour is usually quite sheltered. It lies in a bay which faces east, so it's protected from northerly and westerly gales. On this occasion though, the wind was from the east and the waves were crashing over the breakwater, sending a heavy swell up the river.

  2. HI there Keith!... You have indeed captured the power of the sea in this "simple"... yet forceful seascape! Great colour as well!

    Good Painting!
