Staithes Rooftops


Super painting and a most unusual view of Staithes!

It's such a lovely place and painted beautifully. I love the red rooftops and the grasses leading you into it.

Superb painting Alan.

Spent many a happy day there as a child. You have caught it well.

This is a sheer delight Alan. I love the rusty reds of the roofs against the blue sea and grassy foreground, the indistinct dots of boats and life and the exuberant charm of the place.

Very well painted Alan.

A beautiful place and you have painted it beautifully Alan . I hope the view never changes and that artist of the future have the opportunity to capture the same scene .

So good Alan and those rooftops just zing!

Lovely Alan. It's like the English version of the view overlooking the roofs of Dubrovnik!

So many dimensions Alan, great grassy feel underfoot, to the far horizon, cleverly done. Great palette as always, so fresh.

Beautiful view and I like the summery colours very much. Great!

Lovely colours Alan, great take of staithes.

Amazing view Alan, looks a little Mediterranean! We visited Staithes a few years ago and that walk down to the harbour is a tough one but worth it.

Excellent Alan and thanks for you kind comment about mine. What a stunning place Staithes is? I think you have really done it justice here.

A lovely painting with the colours of the rooftops so attractive, and each roof is different - very subtle.

My goodness this lights up the gallery page Alan! A wonderful example of a loose impression of a scene.

I just keep looking at this Alan. Superb use of tone and colour and the composition leads the eye into the great details in the sea.

I’m always delighted to see so many positive comments on my work, it’s always appreciated.

Love those roofs Alan, its a great composition. They are brilliant against the blue of the sea.

Lovely colours. Attractive

Love the viewpoint and eye-catching colours, especially the blue foreground grasses against the red rooftops.

Beautiful painting

Beautifully painted. I live the atmosphere

Excellent painting Alan , i like how you have played the colours off from one another

Staithes has always been fascinating for me. I have never visited but saw so many delightful shots of the place… your paintings are beautiful with the smashing combination of orange roofs and blue sea

Hang on Studio Wall

A popular vantage point for artists, overlooking the bay with those gorgeous iconic orange rooftops in view. Worked up mainly from my plein air sketches from some 30 years ago - it hasn't changed! Oil on board 40 x 50cm.
