Gale, coastal shipping off Fowey

Gale, coastal shipping off Fowey, “A right bloody mess”

How that came to be is a funny story in it’s self.

"Gale, coastal shipping off Fowey", 81 x 51 cm (32" x 20"), sold to a private collector in Plymouth.

Long since sold for £500 (about $630).

Many distinguished people and renowned companies chose Frickers paintings as you can discover by reading my illustrated résumée.

Coastal shipping

From a study made on location during a strong South Westerly gale.

People usually ask me to paint detail and yet the risks I took that day, the freedom and fluidity of this painting is I feel more representative of my natural character.

 I produced and sold this back in the 1980’s, “Gale off Fowey, shipping movements”.

This painting was developed from a location sketch made during the gale, in the days when I lived near Fowey [pronounced Foy as in Toy, hoy or boy].

How that came to be is a funny story and the stuff of legends.

I’ll add a more bit of that in the book I’ve been asked to write about my work and life.
