Artist's Description

Hayling Island is a bit of a forgotten place, tucked away on the busy Hampshire (UK) South Coast, connected by a bridge to the mainland. This image comes from the far West of the island, where there is a narrow channel separating it from the next ‘island’ (housing the very built up city of Portsmouth). The inlet forms a natural harbour – hence all the boats, and seems to be a good spot for fishing if the figures are to be believed. The guy taking a dip was a brave soul, as in Spring (I worked from a 2016 photo) the waters are very chilly.
The buildings in the mid ground include a small cafe – a great spot for a cuppa with a view.
Minutes later the background cloud rolled over and the colour was all but gone from the scene.
Painted in oil on board 16×12 inches
