All at sea

The above painting of a Brixham Trawler is based on a painting I have known since my childhood by a French Artist. The painting was done about 7 years ago and is sold.

I have an affinity to sailing and the sea but also have a great respect for it. We have sailed the Bristol Channel and West Wales Coast (as well as in the med and arctic circle). All that is now behind us but I still enjoy wandering around little harbours sketching boats, watching the gulls circling and listening to the clanking of halyards on the masts. One of my ancestors, a trawler man was lost at sea and another a seaman lost during the Second World War.

I have now finished Alex's painting of a Misty Towy.
