Original Acrylic Study, Pittenweem, East Neuk, Fife.

Pittenweem is a busy fishing port on the East Neuk of Fife. Its name meaning ‘place of the caves’ refers to St Fillan’s cave in Cove Wynd which was first used as a chapel in the 700s.

The port itself is very colourful not only with the many different fishing boats in the harbour but with the white houses with red and orange roof pantiles brought to the area through trade with the Low Countries.

A busy tourist location Pittenweem also boasts a well respected Arts Festival which transforms the village every August into a hub for artists and art lovers.
