“A right bloody mess”… How that came to be is a funny story in it’s self.
From a study made on location during a strong South Westerly gale.
Measuring 50 x 81 cm, [20″ x 32″], long since sold for £500.
People usually ask me to paint detail and yet the risks I took that day, the freedom and fluidity of this painting is I feel more representative of my natural character.
I produced and sold this back in the 1980’s, “Gale off Fowey, shipping movements”.

This painting was developed from a location sketch made during the gale, in the days when I lived near Fowey [pronounced Foy as in Toy, hoy or boy].
How that came to be is a funny story and the stuff of legends.

I’ll add a more bit of that in the book I’ve been asked to write about my work and life.
