The son of an Edinburgh artist, George Blackie Sticks was born in Newcastle and gained a reputation as one of Northumberland's most distinguished painters. He was associated with the Cullercoats Artists' Colony. After concentrating on North East landscapes, Sticks ventured further afield and the Lake District and Scotland became his main subjects. This painting is typical of his Scottish period. In his later years, ill health meant he was unable to travel and he returned to painting the North East coast.
