I have painted this scene Barry, it was done in 1999 and hangs in the lounge, its one of my husbands favourites. Time hasn't altered Staithes at all and you have captured it brilliantly.

This is really good Barry. Beautiful watercolour.

Many thanks Timothy, John, Linda and Peter for your comments. As you say Linda a timeless scene that you never tire of looking at.

This is how I would like my watercolours to turn out, every time I pick up my brush Barry...I am often disappointed! Lol just love your handling of the darks.

If I Romberg correctly I put the post in to give a reflection to help indicate the water and only realised that it doubled as a mast after committing the act.
