If I lived in the area, Dottys tearoom vintage shop and boutique in Staithes would definitely be my regular haunt. I do recommend a visit if you're exploring the North Yorkshire coast.
I painted this especially for a magazine article I was writing for The Artist magazine, called 'How finished is finished?'
In it I discuss ways that might help to avoid overworking a painting - firstly you need to know what you want to say in the painting and then it is easier to know when you have said it.
And yes, that is all easier said than done!
The article will be published in the September issue of the magazine I think, which will be in UK stores in August.
‘A fine suggestion, a sketch with great feeling, can be as expressive as the most finished project’ Eugene Delacroix
