The staithes, Amble, Northumberland


Beautiful light that you have captured Marjorie, it’s a superb painting.

Oh that’s so lovely

A very good half hour on an oldie!

It's an excellent finish.

Fabulous sky and reflections.

Beautiful coastal scene Marjorie, looks amazing with the sunlight.

Eye–catching – like the glow.

Nicely done Marjorie ☺️

An absolute stunning seascape Marjorie… such a different palette which works so well here!

Thanks for all the comments - I remember it was quite a grey day but the sun behind the clouds was quite dazzling on the water.

A good one, Marjorie

Love the moody limited palette and the dazzling water. Good one!

A nice sparkle to the water, and you have managed to make the distant background interesting.

That’s beautiful Marjorie.

Absolutely lovely light, a beautiful painting

Thanks so much Thalia, Martin, Trevor, Spencer, Emma and Gary. I do appreciate your comments very much.

You have captured the mood so beautifully Marjorie. Such a nostalgic painting for me as I remember those days when Amble was so dirty and busy at the harbour.

How places change Carole - not always for the best, pros and cons, but we can’t go back.

Beautiful light and great sense of distance.

This is gorgeous Marjorie - sorry for late comment- have only just seen it!

That's a coincidence! I've just seen a photo on Facebook of these, with Warkworth Castle in the distance. Taken by a friend who's up there today and posted about an hour ago. I commented that the photo, combined with some of my own, might be a painting reference. Not much plein air happening at the moment!

Roger, mine is looking towards Amble from beside the North Pier.

Missed this one, Marjorie - it is fab!!

That appeals to me Marjorie the light the ambience it’s just right

Hang on Studio Wall

These were the staithes where coal was unloaded on the Northumberland coast. Now just something interesting to look at but a record of Amble’s history. i’ve just spent an enjoyable half hour slapping more paint on to this old painting.
