WHITBY HARBOUR WATERCOLOUR PAINTING

"Whitby is a seaside town, port and civil parish in the Borough of Scarborough and English county of North Yorkshire. It is located within the historic boundaries of the North Riding of Yorkshire. Situated on the east coast of Yorkshire at the mouth of the River Esk, Whitby has an established maritime, mineral and tourist heritage. Its East Cliff is home to the ruins of Whitby Abbey, where Cædmon, the earliest recognised English poet, lived. The fishing port developed during the Middle Ages, supporting important herring and whaling fleets,[2][3] and was (along with the nearby fishing village of Staithes) where Captain Cook learned seamanship."

The appeal of Watercolour is something that I cannot deny.

A media that is just so uncooperative at the best of times but can leave you with instances of hope in each image. To be a master of this media must truly be a thing to behold and I admire anyone that can encourage the paint to produce the kind of images that your mind asks it for!

 

I will probably spend the rest of my life trying though because I DO love a challenge and the translucency, found in those small percentages of the works I do, is something that I really love to look at.
