Condition/Notes : A beautiful watercolour study of Runswick Bay from the upper level of the fishing village. The painting is in very good condition with good strong colours and no foxing or moisture. The scene is idyllic and this famous landscape artist has captured the spirit of the hamlet with a view across the tranquil bay with a solitary fishing boat returning to port. The calls of the gulls can be heard as they fly from chimney pot to chimney pot. Even the rays of sunlight have been captured as they break through the cloud in the upper edge of the painting directly above the harbour entrance. The flowering trees along the lower edge of the painting contrast with the peaceful ocean and emphasize the proximity of the ancient settlement to the sea and how the two elements can co-exist in harmony. The painting is signed by the artist in his usual manner in the lower rh corner. The painting is displayed within a multi-lined white mount board which allows the colours of the study to dominate and harmonize with the wooden frame. The mount is in good condition with medium toning to the cut window edges. The wooden frame with gilt double inner edges is in good condition with very light wear. The hardboard backing is secured by nails and sealed with 40mm self-adhesive framing tape. A gold coloured gallery label is attached to the lower edge which states "Lyn and Geoff Carnes Penny Hedge Gallery 135 Church Street, Whitby, North Yorkshire. Phone...". Rings and cord attached, ready for hanging. Overall, a very attractive and well executed seascape study by this famous artist. Please view the images below :
