Old Staithes by Sue Nichol

oil on canvas 90 × 60cm
This is actually a painting already here on red bubble but I wasn’t totally happy with it so decided to give it a makeover. I hope I have breathed more life and energy into as well as adding depth. I would have just replaced the old image with this one…but I can’t work out how to do it…used to be simple. This painting is inspired by the photographer Frank Meadow Sutcliffe who took many pictures around my favourite areas during the late 19th C and early 20thC.

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.
