One of those snippets of saved reference turned up again showing a scene on Lowestoft fish market in the early 1950s at the start of the Herring season when the Trawlers/Drifters were massed in the fish dock. My reference was of course black and white and I couldn't verify funnel colouring so it's a wild guess. I had red on the palette. I had pleasure in using a painterly style and not over detailed. It seemed to be right for the wet dockside.
Painting in oil 16 x 20 inches.

A lovely scene. The dockside certainly looks wet and slippery!

The Dons and Donalds have it! I agree with them. Magnificent. I can smell both the fish and the smoke. What a painting - splash, splash, splash too! And I am not referring to the technique - only to the welly boots! One of the most atmospheric depictions I have ever seen... Tiree Don(ald).

Ladies first, thank you Sister Eleff you have a kind nature. As I've said before truly my pleasure is being able to paint a picture that so many of you seem to like. Mainly my joy comes from the fact that these paintings revive a memory of past times for so many people.
Thank you to the och aye Donalds, which reminds me splasher Tiree Donald, we haven't seen anything from you for a while! Have you been crabbing off the end of the jetty?
all the best to you all.
Edgar

Thanks, Edgar, for your kind encouragement. I was overwhelmed by the 'modelling bug', but I am hoping to return to some art over the summer. Now that the 'King George V' is truly ship-shape and MacBrayne fashion, I can leave the yard, and go into my splash-proof studio! Best regards, Don(ald) Och Aye frae Tiree. (-:

Your method worked really well, a fantastic scene of hustle and bustle, with the boats elbowing each other out of the way in their haste to off load.
Nice to see one of them named after an Admiral .... even if he was shot !

Very enjoyable; like peering through a dock office window. I can imagine the sounds too! Thanks for sharing.
