Setting nets on the coast of North Wales
An interpretation of a sea and skyscape at sunset. The flat sea washes up towards a beach in the foreground of the painting. The artist has positioned two small fishing boats on the right to create a sense of receding distance, as well as acting as a gauge for scale. In the foreground, two fishermen on the beach attend to the nets, which run to the sea in a sinuous line along the foreshore. The half-stooping man on the left half looks up and engages the viewer, while his companion turns away. Two other figures walk along the shoreline on the left. The depiction of the sky occupies half the canvas, accentuating and echoing the calm scene as darkness approaches.
