In “Three In A Row”, you might be looking at fishing boats moored anywhere around the coastline of Britain. However, their actual location, if you want to know, was the little port of Staithes, on the North Yorkshire coast. My wife and I visited the place in August 2017.
For design reasons – to create a pattern, really – I made slight adjustments to the paintwork of two out of the three vessels. I then decided to anonymise the whole scene, and so I also omitted the boats’ names and registration numbers. The numbers were for three different ports, anyway, so showing them wouldn’t have tied the boats to Staithes.
With the tide out, the boats are sitting in very shallow water on the harbour floor, which explains why they are tilted. The sunlight sparkling on the water’s surface was just as important to me as the boats themselves.
For many years, Staithes has been a favourite location for artists. There was even an art colony, the Staithes School, which settled there in the 1890s/1900s. The old village itself is very picturesque and sits in the mouth of a gorge, where Staithes Beck meets the sea. I’d like to do some paintings of it sometime.
