Waiting for the tide

Waiting for the Tide. Pen & ink. 360 x 220mm © Sue Pownall 2012
 Another Omani scene which has just been delivered to the gallery. 
I believe it will be hung after Ramadan/the summer.
I used Instagram for this WIP.
With my previous boat drawing Preparing to Fish, John of JWJArts asked why I chose the shady side to draw. I didn't really know, but as I drew this one, I realised it's because its tonally more interesting. Besides, this way it captures some of the essence of the burning sunshine too.

I have to confess that this is not a favourite piece out of those I have done so far this year. 
What do you think?
