Hastings beach


Super boats and subject Paul, I know Hastings well and have many sketches of this scene.

Nice details Paul,

Thank you Alan and Linda for you kind comments.

You’ve got great shapes to your boats Paul, I’m hopeless at boats!

Thank you Fiona, you may find boats difficult but you are very good at lots of other things.

Great boats Dixie. Like Fiona, I can't do boats, probably because I know nothing about them. You have some good rigging there with lovely colourful boats.

I know Hastings well, great boats!

Thank you Jennifer and Heather, I love the challenge of the boat shapes and the rigging, it’s only practice and I do think if you have an interest it seems to help.

These boats are amazing, I love the colours Paul.

Thank you very much for your kind comments Dorothea, they mean a lot to me.

A3 watercolour of fishing boats on Hastings beach, still a lot of wooden fishing boats used. Pulled up above the waterline using tractors or winch. The colours are quite amazing, holiday photos used. Not over happy with look of the pebbles on the beach.
