The problem with working in a big sketchbook is that sometimes you can get overly ambitious. My original intention was to paint a one-page sketch of the sunlight crossing the boats on the right in front of the building, but then I noticed the wave movement of the trees and my sketch just kept going and going, right across the page towards the left, until I ended up with a double-page spread that is 17″ across. After it was done I realized that this might also work well as a painting, so I may go back there on a nice morning when the light is like today and paint it on a quarter sheet of good watercolour paper. Or I may do this in studio like I did with the Lobster Pool a few days ago.
