It looks very atmospheric and mysterious, Brian. I like that area very much, especially the view from the ferry to Amsterdam and back.

Thank you very much, once again, Marjorie and Romila, for the engaging comments. Much appreciated. I absolutely WAS going for moody and atmospheric with a hint of mystery, so it was great to read your comments, Marjorie, but I did wonder if it was a bit twee. Best to both Bri

Like this a lot Brian

We'll, why not a touch of melodrama Brian - if Whitby can do it......?

Pleased you liked this one, Heather. Thanks for letting me know. You had me smiling, Marjorie. Whitby indeed. I can almost hear the music. (smile) Best Bri

Definitely beautiful with a mysterious atmosphere, Brian - and so recognisable as I know the area well.

Beautifully painted Brian, the light is superb.I'm sure it will evoke many lovely memories for your niece.

Thank you very much, Anne and Russell, for the highly encouraging comments. Much appreciated. Delighted you liked the light, Russell. Thanks for mentioning it. Bri

It's a beautiful scene, very atmospheric.

Thank you very much for the kind comments, Denise. Much appreciated.

The luminous light behind the priory is mesmerising. I visit this area often as my daughter lives in Tynemouth. You have created a painting with great magnetism and appeal, through your creative palette and treatment of light Brian.

Beautiful Brian, love the warm light shining through the ruined priory.

Thank you very much indeed, Carole and Christopher, for the super comments. Always appreciated. Your kind words left me speechless, Carole, especially as you know this area so well. I'm delighted the light was working. Thanks for letting me know. Best to both Bri

A captivating painting Brian, that will trigger fond memories.

Thank you very much, Fiona. I appreciate the comments and support. Bri

Oil on canvas board, 50 x 40 cms. This is the second of two paintings (Trow Rock Reflections being the first) that I painted for my niece, Anna, my eldest brother's daughter. He passed away a few years ago but Anna has fond memories of the times he took her to the beach to show her the views, AND where he used to play as a boy. Both paintings will hang on the walls of her new home.
