Irvine Harbour

Fionas ship inn


Fiona’s acrylic painting of Irvine Harbour with the puffer “Spartan” at the Maritime Museum pontoon. She is keen to move away from photographic flatness in her work and edge towards a painterly surface. I think this goes a long way to achieving it .

A nice control of colour and tone. In particular the reading of the shaded part of the walls of the buildings. White is the trickiest thing to get right, more so when the reflected light is anything but white.
