I did this painting a few years ago from a photo I took in the early 1980’s. The tumble down fishermen’s hut in the distance is now a swish cottage. There were more cobles in the beck in those days too. 100 views 5.3.11.
(acrylic on canvas 90 × 70 cm)

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.
