Penzance Fishing Boat
This original picture of a Penzance fishing boat in Harbour has been cleverly created by Laurence Henry.
Using a complex design of relief pattern and texture, he has brought together a charming image of a fishing boat languishing at low tide.

The fishing boat depicted within the scene is identified by the letters PZ which in this case tells us the boat was registered in Penzance in Cornwall.
All fishing boats by law must have a Port of Registration and this is identified by the one, two or three letters that precede the numbers painted on a boat.
With a wealth of elaborate and intricate detail, Laurence uses a variety of techniques and unusual combinations to skillfully create highly decorative and desirable works of coastal art.
He has worked as a freelance artist to Liberty, Parker Knoll, Habitat and Gallery Five, before eventually taking full time employment with the BBC as a graphic designer illustrating material for Play School and Jackanory.
Since his early retirement in 1999, he has been able to concentrate on his craftwork, which has always been an important focus to his creativity.
His work is currently exhibited at various galleries around the country.
