Cobles in the Beck, Staithes by 

My favourite place of inspiration with some of my favourite boats in Roxby Beck, Staithes, North Yorkshire.
acrylic on canvas 90 × 60 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 know exactly whay you mean Sue, my next upload is a good example of the strong contrasts and reflected light that i like down there. A nightmare to get right photographically but that’s the challenge :O)
