In November 2009 my birthday fell on our day off, a Monday, so Susan and I decided to celebrate by driving up the Northumbrian coast to Newton by the Sea to have lunch in The Ship Inn.
After feasting on crab sandwiches and some local ale we walked along the beach towards Dunstanburgh Castle. I stopped to do a small sketchbook watercolour (yes even on my birthday) to capture the striking low light.
There was no wind and the sea was like a mill pond. I took some photographs and wasted little time in the studio to set about producing this watercolour which sold from a charity exhibition at the CastleGate in Newcastle in 2011. I did reproduce it as a limited edition print.
There are only 25 copies in the edition which can also be seen at my Studio and Gallery in Ponteland.
