Seagulls, Whitstable harbour

Seagulls, Whitstable harbour © Peter Gander
For my exhibition coming up in Whitstable during the last week of May, a painting of a pair of seagulls. The black and white Fish Market trolley is quite iconic at the harbour, standing opposite the fish stalls themselves and next to a table or two where you can indulge in half a dozen local Whitstable oysters, perhaps with a dash of Tabasco. The harbour has been rendered in a pale wash to avoid fussiness and the concrete reveals the work of a wax candle and dryish brush for textural effect. SOLD 25 May 2011
