Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many artists have found themselves without work, teaching, technical support and gallery work. Exhibitions and sales have disappeared. 

In an attempt to help alleviate some of this stress Martin Burrows has instigated the ARTIST SUPPORT PLEDGE

The concept is a simple one. Artists post images of their work, on Instagram which they are willing to sell for no more than £200 each (not including shipping). 

Once I sell sell 5 of my paintings, I pledge to buy another artists work for £200.

This generous strategy was initiated by Matthew Burrows @matthewburrowsstudio and it has been successful in helping artists worldwide.

Anyone can buy the work. Every time an artist reaches £1000 of sales, they pledge to spend £200 on another artists work.

Paintings North Shields is the theme of this post. The painting of the three lads putting bait on their fishing rods was inspired by a watercolour sketch painted on location. I recall looking into the late afternoon sunlight, working with a limited palette. Low sunlight is sparkling on the River Tyne. Dramatic cloud shapes take your eyes towards the focal point, creating a strong composition.

North Shields, Fading Light is the title of the other painting. One of my first painting commissions was back in the mid 1980’s. A client wanted two watercolours of the River Tyne. A few years ago I re-visited this reference and was taken by this amazing view of the harbour. Seagulls silhouetted against the dark clouds provide a sense of scale and mood to the scene. Paintings North Shields allows me to combine a number of my favourite subjects, skies, water, figures and boats.

North Shields Fish Quay is a fishing port located close to the mouth of the River Tyne, in North Shields, Tyne and Wear, North East England, 8 miles (13 km) east of the city of Newcastle upon Tyne.

The Fish Quay was once the biggest kipper producer in the UK, but the fall in herring stocks has reduced the trade to a single smokery.
