Ready for the Off

Oil on Board, 6 x 8 inches

If you go down to the shingle beach at Beer (where my upcoming exhibition is), a working fishing village in Devon, early in the morning, the fishermen are getting ready to either go off fishing themselves, or take Mackerel fishermen with their rods out for a morning's fishing.  Kim, one of the well-known local fishermen, was just about to go out with his own catch of anglers on this particular morning, his boat set against a milky gray/green sea and the fret starting to lift, with the familiar backdrop of the chalky Beer cliffs as a backdrop.
