Shore Fishing

Shore Fishing   SOLD
Oil on Wooden Panel
10cm x 40cm or 4in x 16in

Low tide, a mist of salt spray obscures some of the cliff.  A lone fisherman fixes his line, otherwise the beach is empty, a few footprints on the smooth sand describe his movements.

I have found, at last, a surface that I enjoy painting on, these wooden panels seem to be very well made and, after priming and sanding, take the paint beautifully.  This is where I get them.
And here is a detail of the painting showing the fisherman hunched against the cold, salty wind.
