OUR FAVOURITE TABLE BY THE WINDOW – ACRYLIC PAINTING

p10203771I wanted a break from the landscapes I am painting for an upcoming exhibition and had some images of when I went back to my home town of Hastings a couple of weeks ago. We stopped off in the old-town and had some lunch at a small café and there was this couple seated across the café, next to the window, which I thought might make a good subject.

LANDING THE CATCH AT HASTINGS – WATERCOLOUR PAINTING

P1070865(1)

I was cycling into Hastings, my home town, and I saw this  fishing boat  coming along the coast with me. I arrived at the harbour before the boat. I had my painting gear, but decided that trying to get this fast moving scene down would be too much, so instead I took some pictures, as they hauled the boat up the beach with the winch. I then walked over to the other side of the beach and painted some fishermen setting up their boat and nets. At least they stayed almost in one spot for the duration.

It was a lovely morning and I cycled back to where my dad now lives feeling I had done a bit and it still wasn’t ten o’clock.
