Sunrise on a Calm Sea

I had a rather large Thames barge with red sails in this painting this morning, but in the end, it looked too crude. You'd need to be able to paint all the little glints and shadings of light and equipment: it can not be imagined or gleamed from thumbnail photos.  I went with my usual understated look instead.
