The Dory Fleet Fish Market
14" x 18", Oil on Panel. There still exists an authentic fish market on the beach, on weekends, near Newport Pier in Newport Beach, a swanky Southern California town with alot of yachts, and alot of surfers. I arrived at dawn and set up on the pier, and started painting as the first dories arrived back from sea and were trailered up the beach to unload their catch. Note the old fisherman high atop the boardwalk entrance to the market. Brian came down from the lifeguard tower after I'd been painting for hours to offer me sunblock for my legs!
