Covid-19 Studio Works 2

'All Moored Up' at Wexford Quays. Another studio effort on Saunders Waterford rough 10x7.

Spent best part of the afternoon on this one from a photo. Three of Wexford's fleet of mussel-dredgers, featuring 'Ede Cunze', 'Cecilia' and 'Noordster', moored alongside at Common Quay.…
