Photograph of the view from the bridge that crosses Roxby Beck in Staithes, a fishing village in North Yorkshire. Pilot Me B, my favourite coble is the one with the white canopy.

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.

    Lovely composition and the lines of the ropes, Sue!

  • Thank you, I take my photographs to emphasise the features that will make a painting ‘work’. All the rules of composition are the same…and are there to be broken too!

    This is a lovely shot of lovely Staithes. As a photographer I have to admire it but as a fan – your art is so beautiful and unique we photographers pale in insignificance. Alma

  • Thank you so much Alice, I do appreciate and value your comments. I love taking photographs but enjoy much more the process of developing on the canvas.

    stunning work sue…into photography now eh

  • Much valued comment from such a master. I have always been into photography. I took it up in a big way when my boys were small and painting was more difficult. I used to develop all my own B&W film and do my own printing!
