I’m lucky enough to live close to Newhaven Harbour and love listening to the tinkling boat masts and seagulls circling above.
I drive past the lighthouse (built 1869) often and yesterday did so with thankfully some time to sketch. I could sit for hours listening to the rocking boats in the small harbour, looking out through the narrow ‘gateway’ to Fife, I find it very relaxing. Add in come watercolurs and a blank canvas and I’m in heaven!
I painted this sketch with black ink and watercolour whilst sitting on the large stone steps between the harbour and road.
The original sketch is now sold but you can order a high quality mounted print from my online shop HERE.
