Not a sketch from nature, it's a combination of sketches and photos that i'm working up into a painting. I was in Runswick Bay on the Yorkshire coast earlier in the year. It was a painting emerging in front of my eyes as a group of children climbed onto the jetty to fish for crabs. I like the shapes and the space the children create, there were probable twenty of them in the end. I may end up painting this more than once using different people on it.
