These were painted today from sketches yesterday at both harbours. Crail is a quite typical Fife fishing village which has similarities with many of the atmospheric harbours along the east coast, but Elie feels different entirely – quite dreamlike. I’m still working on capturing this, but really enjoyed the contrast of both styles today.

Some photos from yesterday..

The exhibition features a series of works on wood (created this year) and takes inspiration from Scotland’s iconic east coast harbours such as Cove Bay, Seacliff, North Berwick, Elie, Crail and Pittenweem.

The exhibition will also help raise awareness and funds in aid of the Scottish Wildlife Trust with 10% of sales going towards the Living Seas project which aims to assist with the recovery of Scotland’s marine life and ensure future marine activity is carried out in a sustainable and environmental manner

Harbour runs from 4th to 30th June (launch/preview- Friday 3rd June 6 – 8pm) at the Freespace Gallery in Edinburgh (7 Easter Road, EH7 5PU) – a space for artists to show their work for free and a meeting place for cultural exchange and ideas related to Scotland and beyond.
