Top Withens (Cathy Come Home) by 

This is the path up to Top Withens, near Haworth Yorkshire, the house, believed to be the inspiration for Emily Bronte’s Wuthering Heights. I have used a little bit of artistic licence as there is actually not much left of the house now.

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 painting – like the texture of the grasses and lots more. I walked over the moor to this place a couple of weeks ago so will be doing my own version sometime.

  • Thank you, Susan, looking forward to seeing your painting:)

    Oh, my gosh! So much emotion in this…and so beautiful.
    I can hear Heathcliff calling for Cathy.
    Truly a joy to see!

  • Lol! Thank you so much for your lovely comment, Robin. Heathcliff and Cathy are represented by the two crows and trees!
