New Paintings for Staithes Gallery Exhibition

I’ve been working on new paintings of Staithes to be part of an exhibition at the Staithes Gallery in April (Lifeboat Show 2011, 8-25 April). There is a rich source of compositional possibilities near the mouth of the river around the footbridge, which springs dynamically across the view, connecting the banks and reflecting in the water. I especially enjoy viewing the town houses and harbour through this device. It also has great personal resonance as my first and strongest impression of Staithes was from this footbridge looking onto a becalmed and moonlit harbour at midnight.
