The juxtaposition of the old cottages and the ruins of Whitby Abbey come together to create this memorable vista.
As you can imagine John Freeman has painted this subject many times, capturing it in many moods and seasons.
This study introduces a soft dawn light to the subject, a late autumn sunrise casting a warm glow across the cottage roofs, enhancing the colour of the Dutch bricks and clay pan tiles which give the town a warmth lacking in many settlements where Slate and Whitewash predominate.
