Dead calm: Boats off Cowes Castle
This calm evocation of a fishing scene consists of a small fishing boat in the foreground to the left. There are two seated figures and one standing in the boat, preoccupied as they look over the side towards their fishing line in the water. In the foreground, on the stone quay, the artist has created a still life with a single shoe, red jacket, small wooden mallet and a tool with a lead weight on a line. The water is flat calm and the pronounced reflections form strong shapes on the water.
