I recently attended a great painting workshop in Yorkshire run by local artist Robert Brindley in and around Runswick Bay
With its sweeping, sheltered bay and charming red roofed cottages, Runswick Bay is one of the Yorkshire coast’s prettiest destinations. The sandy beach, which once provided anchorage for brightly coloured fishing boats, is now a family favourite for rock pooling, fossil hunting and coastal walks, where you can admire the breathtaking sea views.
We set off Saturday morning nice and early to drive to Runswick Bay on the Yorkshire coast, we arrived just before 10am to be greeted by Robert and his wife and the other attendees on the workshop.
After a watercolor demo and a cup of tea I grabbed my art bag and easel and headed out to explore the delights of Runswick Bay. The scenery and location was stunning I was completely spoiled for painting locations. Over the weekend I painted 4 Pleinair oil sketches and did a few quick pencil sketches as well. The weekend went far to fast but please see the small oil sketches I did whilst I was away. All works are oil on board.. I am very grateful for all the advice given by Robert on his Painting weekend and would recommend his workshops
Please find details below on all of Roberts work and also future workshops
