I painted this scene during a heatwave in July 2022. Thankfully a breeze was blowing in from the sea making the conditions comfortable . I couldn’t resist working from the colourful beach huts along the promenade with their interesting triangular rooftop shapes along with the replica naval guns in the background of Blyth Battery. The light effects and shadows were of particular interest on the day.
This painting will be on show at the Glanton Pyke Exhibition: Landscapes by Plein Air North East at Glanton Pyke, Glanton, Alnwick, NE66 4BB, 11th December 2022 – March 2023
