Whitby art – paintings and prints

This Whitby art, both paintings and prints (linocuts), is inspired by the popular seaside town on the East Coast of Yorkshire, UK. With a romantic and dramatic history set by the North Sea and North Yorkshire Moors landscape – both beautiful – there's no end of artistic possibilities for the linocut artist and oil painter.

Painting Whitby

Whitby has it all for a painter and printmaker, from the point of view of landscape, coast and sea. The town has drama and character, as well as a typical seaside resort atmosphere on sunny summer days. The beach to the north of the harbour is perfect for donkey rides, building castles and walking along the waters edge. I've a store of sketches and not enough hours in the day. I'm working on two oil paintings of this part of the coast right now which I hope will capture something of this lovely place. One of these seaside paintings you can see here
