Allan Nelson has been painting scenes of the sea and boats for almost 30 years.  His love of the sea has been the inspiration for some of his most creative works.

A self taught artist Allan found he preferred painting in acrylics as he could get bolder brighter colours. 

After spending many weeks visiting the coast lines of Portugal and Spain he found the old fishing harbours and boats a lot more colourful than the coast of his native Scotland.  The beaches, too, provide endless material for him to use in his beach scenes.
