Doug Hinge is an artist based in Newquay, Cornwall who started his artistic career in the late 1970s with abstract collages, he then moved on to landscapes and seascapes in the 1980's. He continued with these, selling them through his own gallery, from 1982 for many years.
Doug has now gone on to supply several local galleries in Cornwall with his new contemporary style paintings of Cornish Harbours and places.
His new style is quite unique. Paintings with character, boats and buildings in bright cheerful colours, and seaguls with attitude.
Doug said, “These paintings have a sense of humour which should bring a smile to your face and after attending most of Joe’s paddles over the years and seeing how they have grown into this fantastic community event it was a real pleasure to capture this on canvas”.
Dougs oil painting is on ebay for the next week and you can bid on it at https://ebay.us/8RKhAf with all the money going to various charities.
