Looking like a typical summer here in the UK, always a promise of sun but usually ending up with rain. Still another opportunity to paint one of my favourite fishing boats, Flora Jane.
oil on 80 × 80 cm block canvas

My love of the sea stems from my childhood. I was born in Hartlepool on the North East coast and visited the little fishing village of Staithes often, as I still do today. The fishing cobles to be found on the North East coast serve as my models.

    Love all of the lines, and this beautiful little boat (cobble?).

  • Thank you, Fran. This one is actually known as a double ender as it is pointed at both ends whereas as a true coble has a flat stern :) Too much information lol

    Actually, I appreciate that information. I didn’t think it looked like what you have previously painted and called “cobles”. So it’s called a “double ender”. lol. Such descriptive names!

  • Yorkshire folk say it how it is! :) Thanks, Fran

    Sue, this is soooo beautiful! I love the colors, that wonderful light, and how the lines appear to tug at each other while taking our eyes through the image. WONDERFUL!

    Wonderful rendering and composition. I saw your work in the Staithes gallery in April. Such a thrill!

  • Thanks very much, Bev, wish I’d been there at the same time would have loved to have met up.
