Two takes on The Boatman - Cave's Trip to The Lime Tree Arbour

The only connection between Nick Cave's title song from The Boatman and this reconvening take on Robert Capa's photograph of a Chinese boatman might be the word 'Boatman'.  Capa's photograph only had one tillerman but as I spent too much space on the tiller, leaving the man himself was half out of the frame, I put other some parts of him over to his left.  Not, it seems, a good idea. That aside paper and the cobalt water colour have their moments. One could nearly imagine the river water.
