Its late afternoon in Robin Hood's Bay, which means it's time to head back home and change for tea. The fishermen may be done for the day, but this doesn't stop the little ones from catching crabs in the shallow waters. Robin Hood's Bay is a small fishing village in North Yorkshire, whose name derives from the English legend of Robin Hood. After encountering French pirates, who came to pillage the fisherman's boats and the northeast coast, Robin Hood forced the pirates to surrender and returned the loot to the poor people of Robin Hood's Bay Village. Terry Harrison is one of the most popular artists in the Gibsons range and is renowned for his beautiful harbour scene paintings. Robin Hood's Bay is a 1000 piece puzzle that is made from 100% recycled card of the highest quality.
A little about the artist:
Terry Harrison was born near Wendover and attended Farnham Art School before becoming a graphic artist in London. Later, he joined the Yellow Pages as an illustrator and then Thompson Directories in their Farnborough head office. During his spare time, Terry pursued his first love; landscape painting.
By 1984 the demand for his original work was so great that he decided to paint full time and never looked back! After just 12 short years Terry was awarded the Best Up and Coming Published Artist it of The Year by the Fine Art Trade guild, and five years later in 2001, Terry had his first book, ‘Brush with Watercolour’ published and sold over 140,000 copies.
It’s no surprise that Terry Harrison can claim to have his drawings in most homes throughout the country
