Artist's description:

Paddy's Hole is a small harbour on the south bank of the River Tees, close to Redcar. It houses small fishing boats and leisure craft, and has a collection of self-built fisherman's huts around the periphery. This picture was painted in situ on a wet rainy day, and aims to capture the mood and feeling of that day and place.

The technique I employ uses collage on a board, which is then painted over using acrylic inks and paint. I then add further collage at the end. It is very much a layering process, working often with wet into wet. I never use brushes to apply the paint, instead using various mark-making techniques, palette knifes and rollers. This results in both a very textured picture, but also a very loose work, which reflects the memories you have of the place.

Materials used:

Acrylic Paint, Acrylic Ink, Collage (paper, card etc.)
