Drawn to the East Coast Cliffs of Yorkshire! 

As an artist and wildlife enthusiast it all comes together at Bempton and Flamborough on the East Coast of Yorkshire! I've mentioned it before and I'll say it again - just being there is just so creatively exciting, inspiring and just so me! 

Although most of the kittiwakes have gone now the gannets are still there flying past in squadrons and there are many other different types of gulls and sea birds to watch, photograph and ultimately draw and paint in wonderful surroundings.

Being there on a sunny Sunday recently provided me with the ideal opportunity to get out there and paint and draw one of my favourite subjects. 

Here are just some of the paintings created from previous sketches from my 'open plan' office which will be on show at Chantry House Gallery in Ripley near Harrogate, North Yorkshire for the Christmas show.
