Oil on canvas (1955). Yates was exceptional as a
colourist. In his architectural plans he found colour useful for
elucidation, but it is in his paintings that this ability is most
evident. He often juxtaposes surprising colours: complimentary yellows
and purples (Boscastle, 1956) or reds and greens (Great Britain, 1953).
In this print Yates uses a matrix of grays and browns, but centrally he
finds a wonderful combination of deep sea blues juxtaposed against the
reds and the whites of the Staithes cod and lobster boats.
