A Night Full of Sardines (2014)

July 13, 2017 174 No Comments


Was this the most challenging place I have given myself to paint in yet?

Out on the open sea under cover of darkness in the rain, swaying around on top of the wheelhouse of a pilchard boat – a Cornish sardine boat working out of Newlyn.

As part of my new series of paintings looking at sustainable inshore fishing I wanted to get out in the boats and paint alongside the fishermen; in this case on The Pride of Cornwall.

Nerves, excitement, gull scream, diesel and fish stink, fantastic!
