Robin Hood’s Bay, oils on linen, 50x70cm

This is what I’ve been painting for the last month, as a commission. It takes a long time because I love black, but hate the greys one gets when colours mix with black. So the paint has to dry between layers. Robin Hood’s Bay, an idealised view with distorted perspective to get the whole of Ravenscar in, and no gutters on the houses because it’s not raining! I’ve really enjoyed this though it took much longer than predicted… And now, I’m starting on another painting of┬áRobin Hood’s Bay! It would be good to get it finished in time for my exhibition at the Coast Gallery, but that starts in 2 weeks…
