"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."

Eyemouth Trawler Colours 4 and 5

Two more colours down, the first a brown grey colour for some areas of the decking and the edge of the harbour wall in the foreground.

Next was a mid blue tone which will be the main tone for the water down the left side of the print.
On Friday we travelled over to Doncaster to collect the unsold pieces from the Open Art Exhibition. Of the three pieces exhibited one of them sold, so a big thank you to the purchaser if you are reading this. And I hope the print brings you as much pleasure as making it gave me. On Friday evening we attended the preview of the Batley Art Gallery Open Exhibition (two pieces hung), which due to the 'bad weather' had been postponed from the previous week. This is a very good exhibition with a very high standard of work selected and well worth visiting if you are in the area.
