Boats in the sand – second edition

So my first watercolour of 2020 ended up like this: As I wrote in the post regarding the painting, I was very happy with how it ended up. Not with how it ended up looking, really. But the fact that I actually took the time to plan the painting beforehand, stopped half way through to…

Fish City 2.0
