Bridlington art – paintings and prints

I've spent quite a lot of time in and around Bridlington, a great place for art.

My art is available from a fine art gallery in the Old Town in Bridlington, called Gallery 49

Burton Agnes Hall and Gardens, Flamborough Head, Danes Dyke and Bempton Cliffs are all near-by, plus two beaches of very different character. South beach is a long sweeping sandy idyll, while North beach is a combination of sand and pebbles next to the cliffs of Flamborough Head. More than enough to inspire endless paintings and prints so these are just the start.

Altogether I spend quite a lot of time at Bridlington enjoying a light lunch at the Spa (South Bay), or new leisure centre (North Bay), after a morning/afternoon sketching, or planning oil paintings and linocuts near-by in one of the coves on Flamborough Head. That or wandering down the sun-dappled Danes Dyke path to the sea, beach and rock pools looking back toward the seaside town – one of my (many) favourite places in Yorkshire. The light over Bridlington is usually rewarding for an artist/painter and I'd love to do a series of beach paintings capturing it. Only so many hours unfortunately!
