A stunning sunrise over Staithes Yorkshire. Located just north of Whitby; this historic fishing village is of the must see destinations on the Yorkshire Coast. It is very similar to Runswick and Robin Hoods Bay; and shares a the same heritage of fishing and smuggling. Staithes history goes back to Viking times; when the Danes came ashore here at “The Landing Ground”. In more recent times this was the home of James Cook. When James left Aireyholm Farm at Great Ayton; he took a job here as an apprentice grocer. Before leaving and starting his career in the Royal Navy. It was from Staithes where a passion for the sea; grew on Captain Cook. The Yorkshire cobbles in the harbour wont have changed a great deal in appearance since his times. In fact Staithes harbour was one of the busiest ports in England at one time. Today tourism is Staithes main economy. Many of the village’s old cottages have been converted into luxury holiday home by the sea. Been located within the National Park and close to Whitby; this is a great location to stay on the Yorkshire Coast. Staithes also sees a lot of walkers; traveling the Cleveland Way. The trail takes you to the bridge over Roxby Beck to Cowbar; home of “Old Jack” from the children’s TV show. But Staithes has something for everybody; with many shops, restaurants and pubs. There is also two annual events held here, the Lifeboat Weekend and the Heritage weekend that we are proud to be a part of. This is when over 100 cottages in Staithes are transformed into mini galleries selling; mainly Yorkshire arts and crafts.

Colours are exceptionally vibrant with outstanding realism and have a lightfast rating of over 200 years. Our canvases are printed at a staggering 720 x 1440 resolution, which we could not take full advantage of using a canvas of mediocre quality. That is why the canvas we use is imported from the USA, for its superior print quality and longevity. It is a 450 GSM matt poly-cotton canvas that is OBA free and will not yellow overtime like an inferior canvas, it is also archival certified for over 100 years (click here for certificate).
Once printed our canvases are given a day for the ink to cure, it is then protected by a revolutionary Matt varnish to help protect against UV light scuffs and abrasion. Once dry the canvas is carefully hand stretched around a 38mm thick kiln dried solid pine frame and then tensioned using wedges. Finally the back is sealed and a stylish bronze hanger is fitted for ease of hanging.
