Just as he liked to record the comings and goings of factory workers in the city, he was fascinated by the ebb and flow of the tide, and the yachts and ships entering and leaving the safety of the harbour.

A small group of drawings of Amlwch, together with this painting, were made at this time, after the Lowrys’ family holidays had ceased.
