Blue Harbour tells the story of a local fishing boat at dusk – one day near the end of the summer. The textures, colours and patterns of the blues, plus the almost ghostly feel of the boat were born out of that mysterious time of day when the sun finally goes down and the long summer day slips into night.
This little mixed-media, acrylic-collage painting was made from layers of cut and torn hand decorated papers plus layers of text taken from vintage postcards. Artist quality acrylics and mediums were used throughout the process.
It is on a small cotton canvas with a depth of approximately 2cm.
