I painted this winter scene using only black gesso and white paint from my imagination, though I suppose it owes a lot to the North Yorkshire Moors

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.

  • Thanks Sam all that tramping around on the moors pays off…. Sometimes!

    stunning… very powerful and its initial simplicity pushes this further… then the details come out… those great trees… the grass… the birds… the fence… but it’s the path up the center… pulling me in … and along toward the horizon!!!

  • Such a wonderful comment as usual James, I like the way you see further than the first glance….in my mind the ‘path’ is a stream…but either way is fine!
