Fred Hall interpreted his surroundings with a light touch and a realistic approach. He spent a considerable amount of time in Newlyn painting 'en plein air'. Newlyn had a number of things guaranteed to attract artists: fantastic light, cheap living, and the availability of inexpensive models. The artists were fascinated by the fishermen’s working life at sea and the everyday life in the harbour and nearby villages.
