Perth Plein Air Painters – Fremantle Fishing Boat Harbour

20150604 Freo Fishing Boat Harbour1

I joined in the Perth Plein Air Painters for the first time….they were painting at the Fishing Boat Harbour Fremantle this morning. About a dozen friendly people scattered around painting in oils, watercolour or sketching in pencil. It was quite overcast so a little difficult to paint when everything seemed so flat, there were a few spots of rain in the air but it stayed dry.  I got there a little late and chatted for a while then did this quick sketch (about half an hour, ink and watercolour) of a somewhat rusty fishing boat – it was impossible to read the name on the stern! Unfortunately I couldn’t stay to chat with the group…. next time.

I still had the sketching bug…this is a 10 minute sketch from the rocks at Bathers Beach Freo done in water-soluble ink with a couple of licks of watercolour for the post.

On the way home I drove up the coast road towards Cottesloe, there was a big swell rolling in and the sea mist was drifting off the water and the sun had come out. Had to stop for another quick sketch! What a beautiful day it turned into.
