Selwicks Bay at Flamborough Head near Bridlington on the East coast of Yorkshire, UK, is glorious on a sunny day. (Painted on location)
Selwicks Bay is one of many bays on the distinctive headland, that is Flamborough Head. It's the one with the two lighthouses in case you're not sure. The old lighthouse stands in the golf course, while the newer one sits above the bay (to the left out of the picture).

This large painting was painted on location, in the fresh air, sitting high on the cliffs above the view you see here. Painted using acrylic paints on a large sheet of heavy watercolour paper, it's a study of this wonderful scene. There's always plenty to beguile at this lovely location. I'm a regular visitor and always find it rewarding painting and sketching in the bays or on the cliffs. I've also walked around the headland, some 9 miles, so I know it really well. It's one of my favourite places, with many happy days spent here – perhaps my love for the place shows in my paintings.
Please note the size quoted above is the size of the image itself, the paper is not much bigger so some framing methods may cover some of the image slightly.
