St Andrews Boats and Cathedral

This is my most complicated watercolor yet and took me three times as long as the others. It started out with me just wanting to paint the amazing old red boat docked in the harbor then I thought instead of inventing what the side looks like I should include the other boats. I drew it pretty tightly in pencil first then came back with the watercolor. If anything its too structured and perfect and it feels a little dead, otherwise I really enjoy this one. It is a great view with the cathedral ruins in the distance and the old city wall. Where the green shed is in real life there is an ugly ice cream shop that I replaced with this fishing building from another location.
