I was so pleased when the beach huts arrived back in Earlsferry. They are like happy, bright dabs of colour dotted along the beach. I love the way they nestle in amongst the dunes looking so cosy, cute and inviting. Fifteen years ago when I first started painting Elie there weren’t any beach huts at all. I was told by someone who lived in Elie that there had been a powerful tide one day which had washed them all out to sea!
I have included the beach huts in a few paintings previously, but this time I really made the most of them by painting their reflections in the sea. The Earlsferry houses behind looked quite boring and dull in comparison to the colourful little summer houses so I painted some bright colours in their windows. The weather was typically Scottish that day – bright but breezy. The girls on the left are well wrapped up whilst sipping from their hot flask of coffee. The boy in the middle is braving his shorts and T-shirt although he does look like he is shivering a little. I’m not sure whether he will dip his toe in the water or not! Meanwhile the boy on the right smiles smugly as he walks past with his surf board. He is pleased that he wore his wet suit. Brodie is having a great time digging a hole. I hope he isn’t getting sand on his spotty bandana!
