Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Thursday, 20 May 2021

Newlyn captured on canvas.

Yet another Scottish visitor to Newlyn, this time the boat is not chasing prawns but quality whitefish like hake west of the Scillys...

the Greenock registered GK44 Acionna is a traditional Scottish seiner like the Boy Andrew in the video Last of the Hunters  uses rope reels to spool combination warp and shoot her nets from the stern...

- a far cry from the ultra-modern Dutch fly-shooters that were operating off to the southar'd last month

the classic lugger Barnabas has had her masts restored to their rightful position...


the ever-changing scene in the harbour provides local and visiting artists like Lizzie Black and Clare Bowen with a wealth of views from which to take inspiration and capture on canvas...

be it close-up studies of fishing boats...

or a wider view of the gaps with the Mount in the distance.
