Low tide on the Roxby Beck, Staithes, North Yorkshire

Landscape Watercolour 15" x 11" on Bockingford Rough Paper 140 lbs

Low tide at Staithes and the banks of the Roxby Beck, the smallish river that flows through Staithes exposing it's banks of mud and algae.  The 'coble' fishing boats are a trademark of Staithes and used to be the traditional boat of the local fishermen there, but now they're more of a static prop and feature in all of the postcards of the town.
