Crail Harbour Original Watercolour | Paintings of the East Neuk of Fife – Alan Reed
Crail Original Watercolour
For over 20 years I’ve enjoyed painting in Scotland. Recently I decided to revisit some of the fishing villages that I’ve painted in the past along the East Neuk of Fife. The weather has been dreadful over the winter months which hindered my plans right up until early February. I was finally able to travel with the promise of sunny weather.
I managed to visit three of the fishing villages which I have painted before and have published as limited edition prints, Pittenweem, Anstruther and Crail.
Even though it was sunny, it was still very cold but I was still able to do a sketchbook watercolour at each one of the harbours. The one of Crail seen here was painted from a high vantage point looking into the low winter sun.
Crail in Fife
Crail is a charming fishing village in the East Neuk of Fife and boasts one of the UK’s most photographed harbours. This is the place to visit if you love fish n chips.
Cobbled streets lead to the harbour where you can enjoy freshly caught seafood at the Lobster Hut during the tourist season. In June each year, the village comes alive as it hosts the Crail Food Festival.
Crail is a charming village in the East Neuk. Wander down to the harbour and you’ll discover why this is one of the UK’s most photographed harbours.
