A Busy Time

Sorry I haven't been up dating my blog much recently but my son and his wife have been over on a visit from Siberia where they live. They were only here ten days so wanted to spend as much time with them as possible so not much time for painting, but a lovely break.
I did manage to complete one painting which is a little different from usual style. A fishing boat coming in to the harbour of Staithes from a night's fishing. I wanted to show what they might have caught and as there was a lot of space at the bottom of the canvas I decided to do a sort of abstracty collagy thing with paintings of a mackerel, cod and herring gulls. As I still had some space I added two familiar icons in the village, smuggler's cottage and the end of the northern breakwater. I am quite pleased at how it worked out and may use this technique some more in the future.
Hope you like it.


  1. Oh my word Sue, Siberia! Visions of tundras, ice everywhere, temperatures -80℃! lol! I'm sure they enjoyed their stay with you and that you in turn had a great time seeing your family! Lovely painting, love the 'collagy" thingy at the bottom!

    1. Thank you, Maree. I maybe going to Siberia in January, so I will let you know! Plenty of white paint methinks!
