Sunderland Point


A sketch from walking around Sunderland Point near Heysham. ‘Sunderland’ means separated land; twice daily the tide cuts off the route to Overton. Once a busy transhipment port, it became a popular sea bathing destination in the 19th Century. It also drew artists from the Manchester Academy such as Philip Gilchrist and William Page Atkinson. Acrylic on hot pressed watercolour paper, presented unframed and measuring 39 x 25 cm
