Painting night scenes is always a challenge. My first one many years ago came about by accident rather than design (too much dark collage under the painting to make a daytime scene work) but I soon came to realise that ‘dark’ doesn’t mean black. This is a harbour which comes to life at night with all the bars and restaurants, the fishing boats just a shadowy reminder of daylight.
