Scarlet Masts

February 5, 2017
New picture - 'Scarlet Masts'

Today fishing continues to flourish in Old Town, Hastings, where tall Net Shops are a unique feature. All fifty are black and wooden and originally built to store fishing gear over the winter. Usable space was at a premium, so Net Shops had to expand upwards when extra space was needed.

The original measures 36" x 24" and costs £225. Framed prints are available from £37.50.

It was lovely to meet her yesterday and to see how her face lit up with pleasure when she actually saw the real painting. Thank you, Claire!

I have quite a few ideas for more paintings of this size. Watch this space but please be patient as they won't appear o...

Coastguard Cottages and the Seven Sisters

July 25, 2016
