Catalogue entry

Made with the page turned horizontally, this coloured study is apparently based on the pencil sketch on folio 10 recto opposite (D02475), though there are substantial differences of detail between the two.
For other watercolour studies in this sketchbook, see under folio 5 recto (D02468), and for other views of Whitby, see under folio 6 recto (D02469).
