I positioned myself on the harbour wall looking to the other fishermens huts with steelworks as a backdrop and the North York Moors in the distance.
The morning painting started with a watercolour wash then collage and ink work and acrylic for the highlights.
The afternoon painting show the boats and huts around to the left. The collage was done with the help of the daughter of the lady from Transylvania who helped me with the collage element and signed the lefthand side of the painting. I did the drawing and the acrylic highlights.
The lady latter thanked me for getting daughter involved in art after her unsuccessful efforts.
The winner of the wildcards was Roy Carless from Hartlepool who in my opinion produced the best painting of the day including the pod artists.The judges kept referring to him on TV as ' chalky boatman'.
Detail on Roy's painting.
I had a good time painting and meet some interesting artists but was disappointed that none of the judges or presenters spoke to me while last year everyone except Frank Skinner passed some comment.
