A pier at low tide is the subject of this 5x8cm miniature painted from memory. It belongs to my series of miniature seascapes.
Piers became very popular in England in the 19th century when people travelled to their favourite seaside resort by boat. Other means of transport were still under developed. So piers were built to allow boats to moor even when the tide was out.
I have now completed my 100 seascape paintings destined for the ArtSurprise vending machines.
