Blakeney Point and North Norfolk Beaches, 2007-2008

THE WATCHHOUSE, BLAKENEY POINT
Watercolour 56 x 76cm, 2007 - Sold
I spent some time on Blakeney point in 2007, painting on location, then producing larger pictures back in the studio. This and the picture below are two of the studio paintings of this iconic building.

WATCHHOUSE CREEK 1

RED BANK, BURNHAM OVERY STAITHE BEACH
Watercolour 56 x 76cm, 2008



SALTHOUSE BEACH IN THE MIST, 23rd MAY 2008
Location study, watercolour 28 x 38cm
My heart sank when I reached the coast and saw the mist, but on looking closer, I found it really interesting; everything was very subtle: the pale colours, the patches of wind-ruffled water, the way the sea merged into the sky, and the odd seal coming up to look at the people on the beach!


PANORAMA FROM SALTHOUSE HEATH, MAY 2008
Double-page spread from sketchbook, 28 x 75cm
Painted over three days; it was so cold, with a northerly breeze, that I couldn't stand more than 2-3 hours on the spot at one time.


THE NORFOLK COAST PATH, MORSTON MARSHES, JUNE 2008
Mixed media 56 x 76cm
A lovely warm day for a change!
