|"River Island at Wick" - watercolour - 16 x 26 cm|
I always find this island in the river at Wick interesting. Its banks have been reinforced with stone for some reason: maybe to act as a breakwater to protect the town downstream. The flagstone walls make it look like a fortress in the river. When the water is high and reaching right up to the foot of the stones, it can even take on the appearance of an old ironclad battleship sailing down the river.
