Harbours, boats and the sea have always had a fascination for artists. The colour, shapes, changing light and moods all play their part. Even the architecture is influenced by its surroundings; weather- beaten and battered, braced against the elements to withstand many a storm on cruel winter days but always wonderful to paint. I am no exception, when I see a view like the one above I just want to pick up my brushes and paint.
