Northern Pride, Boulmer, Northumberland by 

I spent a few days in Northumberland seeking out cobles, (the traditional, wooden fishing boat of the North East Coast of England), this one was my favourite of all the ones I saw. Painted in oils using a palette knife, sticks and brushes using thick paint and glazes.

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.

    Wow ! that’s a cracker Sue, the whole image is filled with weather , light and atmosphere. Love it !

    I particularly like how you didn’t overdo the orange dodger , that amount of saturation and vibrance is perfect.

  • Thanks Sam, glad you like it and pleased you think I got the orange dodger just right. Happy New Year to you.
