This is my drawing for world drawing day. I started it at 10am and finished at 3.15pm 4.6.11.
The drawing is of a coble at Paddy’s Hole, South Gare, Tees Mouth, UK

coble, fishing boat, south gare, sue nichol

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.
