Study for The Lookout.

Charcoal on watercolour paper, 9x9 inches.

The Lookout (2013) 

From her vantage point on the dunes, she looks out to the horizon and surveys the incoming vessels intently. Watching, always watching, until her seemingly endless wait is over and her love appears again after another day at sea.

From the original charcoal study, I am currently working this up to a final painting in oil on wooden board with current progress shown below - from initial study to current stage of painting.
