This oil painting shows the North East Coast village of Low Newton, as the sun goes down. A lovely quiet place with focal point, The Ship Inn, located in the village square ( down the road in the picture and to the right). Good ales and food, with the sound of the waves on the beach and seagulls cries, as you sit outside on a sunny day.
The beach is typical of so many on this Northumberland Coast; acres of clean sand, rarely more than a couple of dozen people on it, backed by wild grass covered sand dunes. In the distance can be seen the ruins of Dunstanburgh Castle.
