Description

Paintings of Norfolk

Paintings of Norfolk painted on location at Burnham Over Staithe and a harbour scene at Wells-next-the-sea was very complex early in the morning at low tide and with a dramatic sky.

I made several very pleasurable trips to this tranquil spot in Norfolk so I could paint “en plein air”. Paintings and prints of English Cities available for purchase from Alan Reed Studio & Gallery.

My preference is to paint early morning to capture the light rising. Imagine my disappointment when I arose to be greeted with a rather dull, flat mist. I still pressed on and decided to tackle the buildings and boats overlooking the estuary. The scene came to life when a lady decided to take her boat out on the right hand side of the study which provided some added interest.

Sketchbook Watercolour of Beach Huts

The beach huts are great fun to paint. An array of assorted bright colours set against a backdrop of green foliage. The dark clouds threatening rain compressed the scene, keeping the focus on the huts. As I don’t use a pencil for these kinds of studies, it was important to really think through the composition before putting brush to paper.
