Finished. My paint/lino-print combo hoarding board. One of dozens done by the local community of Herne Bay, Kent, which will be used to decorate the hoarding which is surrounding the Herne Bay Clock-Tower whilst it undergoes some much deserved t.l.c. My work is meant to depict a shoal of whiting, one of the many local fish (hope all fishermen out there won’t be utterly appalled by my interpretation of a Whiting!).
“Will you walk a little faster?” said a whiting to a snail,
“There’s a porpoise close behind us, and he’s treading on my tail.
See how eagerly the lobsters and the turtles all advance!
They are waiting on the shingle – will you come and join the dance?
Will you, won’t you, will you, won’t you, will you join the dance?
Will you, won’t you, will you, won’t you, won’t you join the dance?
