This pencil drawing shows one of Park’s most typical views, St Ives Harbour with the bottom of Fore Street to the bottom of Fish Street. The drawing shows the wharf before it was paved in 1922.
Park frequently filled sketchbooks with drawings, working confidently in the manner espoused by Olsson. These were often ideas for oil paintings, sometimes set down in charcoal and conté crayon or pencil. These were often quite structured and finished drawings which helped to give his eye the structure of the finished painting and a sense of texture.
