Robin Hood's Bay

This is a painting I started some time ago,  but added figures to yesterday.

Robin Hood's Bay, acrylic, 12 x 16 inch

The name Robin Hood's Bay is a bit of a mystery.  Some say Robin Hood came here, but others believe that the name is derived from the wood elf Robin Goodfellow.  Yet others believe that it was probably named after a local smuggler, as Robin  Hood's Bay was once a busy port, larger than Whitby. When we used to visit when our daughter was small, my husband would tell her that it was where Robin Hood went for his holiday's. So you can take your choice.
