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 like the strong textures here, Sue. And the perspective across the field. It conveys a great atmosphere, of this wild part of North East Yorkshire.

  • Thank you so much Colin
