Knots Landing depicts a scene which could be found close to any Suffolk shoreline, or indeed any where there is still remnants of an inshore fishing industry. A tangled mass of ropes, chains and other discarded paraphernalia here providing the backdrop for a seagull, perched on an old timber beam. I spent many happy hours reproducing the different textures and intricate details of all the elements in this scene before adding the gull to help bring the painting to life. I find it's one of those which entices the viewer to study the composition for long periods, following the course of the ropes into the depths of the painting. Quite large at 20.75 x 13.75 inches, it is presented in an antique white mount within a rich yew frame with gilt sight edge to a total size of 30 x 23 inches, ready to hang.
