Painting in Norfolk

Famous the world over for its light and huge variety of painterly subjects, I’ve spent two days mainly plein air painting in North Norfolk with John Hoar around Brancaster Staithe and Burnham Overy Staithe. Here are the (mixed) results. It’s an inspiring place to paint.

Three recent paintings

Three watercolours from another workshop with John Hoar. Here is a snowy scene and two west of Ireland paintings. The large white cottages are of the east end of Inishbofin island, County Galway. Can’t wait to be back there in May.

Two Exmoor paintings

Here are two watercolours painted today of Exmoor scenes. One is of the little village of Molland and St Mary’s church on the southern foothills of Exmoor and the other, a big landscape 22 inch x 15 inch of Landacre which has a little bridge – just visible – over the river Barle, in the north of Somerset. Both were painted quickly, the Molland picture also with bamboo pen and ink.

In celebration of Renvyle

Today I booked another week in Renvyle, Connemara for next May (2018). It’s one of the most beautiful places on earth and my personal favourite in my favourite country. So in celebration Iand anticipation I have painted this typical view today.
