Walking Along the Beach at Robin Hood’s Bay


A subtle, atmospheric painting of one of North Yorkshire’s prettiest seaside villages – Robin Hood’s Bay. The ebb tide leaves hundreds of rock pools for exploration and a huge expanse of wet shiny sand to reflect the sky.

I wanted to capture the huge expanse of sand and bedrock exposed by the retreating sea. The girl strides into the picture confidently and provides a sense of scale and forward movement. The steep downwards approach to the beach at Robin Hood’s Bay is a curtain raiser to one of the grandest bays in North Yorkshire. We’ve visited many times and I’ve sketched it often.
