This mosaic developed from the combination of two

ideas - fishing boats and thoughts about dramatic skies, inspired by Van Gogh’s Starry Night painting. The day I visited Hastings was actually sunny but in this picture I wanted to capture that slightly eerie atmosphere and light from the moment when it is still bright but you know it will not be for long.  I think the tension between the stylised sky and more realistic foreground in this mosaic helps to achieve that aim.
