Swaledale sheep walking trough deep snow in the Yorkshire Dales.
(acrylic on canvas 60 × 40 cm)

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.

    I love this painting, Sue. You capture the mood of the day and the place so effectively, and ye, I too, love sheep.
    Both of my parents were born in Hartlepool, and I spent many a summer there by the sea, so your paintings mean a a lot to me.

  • Hi, what a coincidence and thank you for taking a look at my work.
