"The artist...is also a born adventurer. His explorations, unlike those of a tourist, are rewarded by the discovery of beauty spots unmentioned in the guide books, and with tireless curiosity and an exceptional proneness to wonderment, he will come upon objects of remarkable interest overlooked or even shunned by more disciplined observers."

More Boats

Its been a bit of an odd sort of week. After last weeks rush to get everything mounted and off to Holmfirth. I started this week at a bit of a loss and lacking inspiration-and motivation. Then I got around to thinking about the next round of exhibition submissions and came up with this. A Yorkshire Coble on the Coble Landing at Filey. Suitable for submission to the Ferens Open in Hull. Its only midsummer and I'm already thinking about an exhibition next February- talk about wishing your life away!

Anyway, from the sketch I worked up a cartoon on tracing paper....

and reversed the image onto a linoblock. And thats as far as I've got. As for the number of colours-difficult to say at this stage, it might be a lot!
