This is really one of my favorite places. Robin Hoods Bay is just so quaint, full of character and a real pleasure to visit. This particular spot is so often photographed, but if you know this little town you will know that it is just the delightful view you get when you finish walking down the very steep hill alongside beautiful little Fisherman’s cottages to reach the edge of the sea and look back.
This little town is close to Whitby on the North East coast ofEngland and when I go to visit my parents we so often come here and just walk down the hill, through the cobbled alleyways and steps and simply just take in the wonderful atmosphere. This painting has a very experimental use of watercolor which seems to have captured something about Robin Hoods Bay’s magic.
