A companion sketch to one made of the sea at Dusk. The character of the open sea is fascinating to capture, the light endlessly changing.. ideal for watercolour. This study was probably taken some distance above the Doggerland.
Strange to imagine that in the Holocene, aurochs, woolly rhino and wild boar were passing unhindered around 25m under the keel of the ship. Now the sun plays on the purple waters.
