This is a collection of five small, colourful 6×4 inch prints of scenes in and around the ancient fishing village of Footdee, Aberdeen (“Fittie” to the locals), from my original sketches.
When the North Sea oil boom started, Fittie was in danger of demolition to make way for an oil base, but fortunately it was saved and is now a thriving community, juxtaposing its traditional fishing heritage alongside its present-day oil neighbours.
I’ve tried to capture this in my sketches, the narrow streets and colourful out-houses and I’ve set the five original sketches in a nice natural wood frame. The external dimensions of the frame are approximately 65cm x 25cm and the images are all approx. 14cm x 9cm.
Fittie is a popular destination for locals and tourists alike which perhaps explains why this is a popular work.
