The next postcard image based on Whitstable Fish Market’s trawlerman model
Keen to move onto a more ‘Whitstable-centric’ postcard this time, I have chosen this iconic figure (not sure whether he’s fibreglass or wooden). This first pic shows him in his original paint job (hich I’ll be following in my painting). A lovely egg-yolk yellow waterproof and so’wester and the (cod) fish’s colour and his own skin tones look accurately rendered. But you can see in this old pic that his paint job was peeling and in need of a bit of tender loving care.
