Mritime, Painterly


Just behind Chesil beach in Dorset is Fleet Lagoon which is the home of the Abbotsbury Swannery and has a fascinating history which includes a village partly destroyed by a Tsunami, smuggling and fishing plus the siting of the classic 19th century novel Moonfleet  by Falkner.moonfleet

Whilst walking around the shore, on a warm still hazy sunny day, my wife and I came across some workboats and I had to paint them looking towards Portland Bill.
