Rose of England, Staithes Harbour by 

Rose of England is a typical coble, the fishing boat familiar to all visitors to the North East coast of England. Flat bottomed to make launch from a beach possible, with a lovely round belly, clinker built in wood.I think they are a very feminine boat. Originally a sail boat they are now mostly powered by a small engine.
(oil on canvas 90×60cm)

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.
