#88 'Staithes Beach' 7x9.5"

Second painting in Staithes on the Plein Air workshop. Love the little red boat so much so I painted it another 2 times after this!
Blocking in the dark tones first gives a good backdrop for the sunlit boat house. Also careful to observe the sand colours - not just yellow :-)

The photo below shows I have cropped in to paint the areas I am drawn to.


  1. Nice bold confident brushstrokes.

  2. Lovely sunlit picture. I am observing your technique and cropping very closely and getting ideas on how to tackle seascape/landscape. It looks as if you were some distance away yet you have managed to make an interesting composition with the elements you have chosen.
