Another painting of Mizpah. I did this one in acrylics a few years ago and decided it was worth revisiting in oils.
Mizpah is in Roxby Beck at Staithes, just North of Runswick Bay and Whitby.

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 too…for all the reasons that both Woodie and John state…also the colour. I really like how you have limited your colours to variations of blues, gold and browns. Excellent work!
