The Bait Digger

This is the second completed painting in my new Seacliff Heritage series. It’s called “The Bait Digger”, oil on canvas, 40 x 30 inches.

This series of paintings will have a heritage focus when the seashore was a vital resource for the local community. All paintings are set at Seacliff Beach in East Lothian. The Firth of Forth has been a huge resource for us for thousands of years. Fish, oysters, mussels and seaweed have all been abundant at times, scarce at others and in somes cases, such as oysters, now extinct.

This painting will feature in my next exhibition at Gallery 17, 17 Dundas Street, Edinburgh. The exhibition will run from Saturday 13th August to Sunday 28th August 2016.
