My love of the sea stems from my childhood. I was born in Hartlepool on the North East coast and visited the little fishing village of Staithes often, as I still do today. The fishing cobles to be found on the North East coast serve as my models.
One of my favourite views of Staithes, a lovely image, it really captures the spirit of the place.
What a beautiful scene Sue, love the light you have captured in this one,Regards Jim
Thank you Jim

Sue this is amazing!! Not only is it a beautiful image of a delightful place, but the red roof in the background houses the very house in which we stayed for a holiday last year. On my site, only a few days ago, a have posted a picture taken from the corner on the left hand side, just beyond the lifeboat station, of the fishing boats leaving at dawn. I absolutely love it.

Thank you for your kind comment and well done you for choosing Staithes for a holiday. Do you go there often?
the QUIET of this painting is palpable! Stunning… even just a glance and my inner self slows down… to stillness…;-)))
That is lovely James, thank you.
I have seen quite a few paintings and photographs of Staithes recently. It looks like the most ‘painterly’ place to visit! Would love to go there. This is just beautiful Sue.
Thanks Lynda. Staithes certainly is a great place to paint. A group of artists used to live there late 1800’s – early 1900’s before moving down to Cornwall. They were known firstly as the Northern impressionists, then the Newlyn Impressionists and include some of my favourite artists.
wonderful artwork, Sue The still water and the reflections are Beautiful !I wonder if it has changed much since Captain Cook lived there, all those years ago ?
Thanks George, you know I don’t think it has changed that much, thank goodness!
