The Grampian Quest

Medium: Oils on canvas

Original Size: 79 x 89

I painted this trawler as it was waiting to be fitted and furnished to start its life as a luxury private vessel for a successful business man.

I was fascinated by its air of neglect and it spoke to me of time spent in deep sea fishing grounds.

I was interested in exploring the effects of its hulk on the surrounding muddy water of the River Hull.
