Staithes Beck from North Side

Susan Isaac - Staithes Beck from North SideCompositionally here, in this final Staithes view, my primary interest was in the dynamic procession of post and rail, springing diagonally from the foreground and branching off in the distance of the painting. The starkness I found came in part from working contre-jour, with the glowering sky and simultaneously presaged rain contrasting with the possibility of brightness from behind a break in the cloud, all enhancing a curious tonal atmosphere. I enjoyed too finding texture and interest in the mundane, particularly with the tamped concrete road surface.
