Having recently moved back close to where I grew up on the Thames Estuary, my afternoon seafront walks have taken me past several of the Yacht Clubs' storage jetties. I am transported back to a favourite childhood memory of the sound of the rigging tapping in the breeze. I felt the need to capture the memory on paper, along with the colour harmony and interesting shapes that the dinghies make, when 'resting' from their work. I intentionally, introduced a hazy feel to the scene, by using pastel and wax crayon, before my watercolours, to emphasise the patterning, contrast and shapes, rather than the realism of the scene.
