Under a dun-coloured overcast sky of late afternoon, the various boats shift and relax, reflecting the diffused glow of a low sun. A raised horizon, high on the picture plane, focuses the attention on the wide, peaceful stretch of calm water: all effort and hurry is over, as the harbour quietens into twilight. The smudged colours of the landscape and warm reds & creams are reminiscent of the Bloomsbury painters; the drawing of the boats, however, is crisp, sharp and economical. The surface of the sea is articulated with graphic dashes and lines of thin impasto, gathered in finely-observed areas which reveal the three-dimensionality of the water, its shadows and movements.
