      As long as I can remeber I've been

visiting Whitby, my grandparents

moved there from Leeds just after the

1st world war, and we would visit often

so I have past  remeberances of the

place, summer holidays would be spent

catchingherrings and watching the

regatta. One outstanding featurse

being the Abbey with the 199 steps that

leads up to it. Viewed from the

whalebone on the opposite side of the

harbour the fishermens cottages

snuggle into the cliff. I was interested to

try different mark making on this print

Hard blacks & greys and grass

formation.
