Fowey and a day to be snugged down in a safe harbour…
Fowey harbour and a heavy gale. 50.5 x 81 cm (20″ x 32″), sold
The forecast is the gale will build to storm force 10 tomorrow.
Painting at Fowey while in the sheltering the ruins of the old Polruan Block House.
Fully exposed to the gale and sitting near me there were 2 anglers fishing.
When they’d had enough one came to see what I was doing ?.
Of my very loose, rather wet sketch he said “you’ve made a right bloody mess of that ?”
He went home with no fish ?.
I went home with a sketch and photographs that produced this painting, eventually sold for £500.
A fair price back in the early 1980’s ?.
I think today will be a day for catching up on paperwork, an nice open fire, a game of chess with my neighbour Matt. I have an article to write about my painting “Laperouse at Botany Bay”, for the Association Laperouse, more of that soon ⚓️
