SH 218 on the Coble Landing-Filey
Reduction Linocut (10 colours). 181mm x 270mm.
Edition of 6.
Finally finished the Coble linocut. I'd printed colours 6 and 7 before I realised that I'd forgotten to photograph the stages. So I pressed on and printed the final colours. Like Hornsea, Filey doesn't have a harbour. So the boats are dragged up the beach by tractor and parked on the landing, well above the high tide line. The boats have a rugged simplicity of design, reputedly derived from the Viking longships. Originally they were fitted with a mast and sail, now however, most are powered by engines.
