Really superb work Pat, it looks idyllic. Great architecture and perspective which is never easy at this height, much evidence of the seagulls also.

makes we want to go there,! great work

Superb Pat with many areas of interest and beauty

Smashing place and pub apart from when I got mugged there in my late teens. <br />Lovely scenes, subjects, angles and tiny alleys.<br />Great painting Pat

I do like the unusual perspective of this - well observed Pat

So many paintings of Staithes but I do like this one, I think what makes it particularly different is the perspective and the Cod &amp; Lobster lettering, a great focal point!

Beautiful. I especially love the part where the sea meets the sand and the slight shadows beneath the boats in the harbour.

I wouldn&#39;t have the nerve to tackle anything like this Pat, your brave and talented to make a super success of it. Excellent work!

Love this one pat really makes me want to go there .

That&#39;s great Pat - I recognised it straight away! I like the little details of seagulls and their droppings on the roof tops :-)

You&#39;ve definitely got a winner here Pat! Great design.

This is excellent, Pat. The viewpoint works beautifully and creates a very interesting perspective and composition.

Wow - had a look today and was surprised at how many comments there are. I really enjoyed painting it outside even though it was a challenge - so thanks everyone for finding the time to comment. Made my day

Attractive viewpoint, great painting Pat.

Oil on Linen Canvas 40 x 30cm. Very recognisable view which I almost completed painting outside up the steps to a good viewpoint above the harbour at Staithes. The seagulls were deafening and had left their marks everywhere. It was lovely weather when I painted it in June,keeping track of the angles and rooftops was a bit challenging. Just got round to finishing it at home - I've added a few highlights and a strengthened a few tones. Great place to paint - there are so many painters and sketchers doing similar views!
