Justin of Whitby

Memories of summer

Justin of Whitby

Watercolour on watercolour paper, 8" x 5"

On this very cold and gloomy day, I thought it would be nice to remember warmer days. Whitby is one of my favourite holiday destinations. It lies on the North Yorkshire coast and was the setting for Dracula's spectacular landing on the shores of England in Bram Stoker's vampire novel. This painting shows a small shop tucked away in the old part of the town. It sells the most wonderful toffee fudge, including one they've called Dracula's Coffin!!

I've never been to Whitby but one day I will visit. Bet its cold there just now! You are inspiring me to take up watercolour painting, I once had a go and gave up.

I think Whitby is at its best in autumn and winter! Hope you do give watercolour another try. It can be very frustrating but the results are worth it.
