Depiction of a group of fishermen’s houses next to a small harbour. The whole pedestrian area and vertical wall are dripping wet from the swell, which is sucking back from its onslaught. The picture is simplified into a pattern of geometric shapes, triangles, squares etc. Painted with a palette knife and makes great use of impasto.
