STILL LIFE 62 – THE COLOUR OF THE SEA BENEATH A SMALL BOAT
October 2, 2016 17 Comments
A small, blue boat rides at anchor – a very simple image, that’s really all there is to see.
The only solid facts are the simple, elegantly curving lines of the boat. Beyond them, the sea’s surface takes on a silvery hue where the light catches it. But in the craft’s brief shadow, this paleness disintegrates and fragments as, approaching closer to the graceful blues of that wooden hull, the emerald greens of the sea deepen and, gently but firmly, draw us further in and deeper down.
