Carol Berry, View from Newcastle Harbour. Oil, 8 x 10 inches. ©2010.
I loved painting this on location. I set up my gear on the breakwater near the lighthouse at the mouth of the Newcastle harbour. Besides the curious seagulls, a steady parade of large sailing cruisers motored past me while I painted which was exciting for me, a sailor, and of course the boat crews were happy to see an artist depicting a view that they loved so they all said hi to me.
