Week 33, 2017 Colour sketch challenge

Dunwich Heath

After visiting just over a month ago when the heather was just beginning to flower I started to plan this sketch and sure enough 4 weeks later the heather is now in full flower. A short walk southwards up one of the paths to the top of the hill for this wonderful panorama looking back towards the coastguard cottages owned by the National trust. The view was taken by sitting on the back of a bench which made working with the easel a little difficult.

Week 32, 2017 Colour sketch challenge

Sotterley Straw Bales

Well into August now and many of the fields have been harvested and of those many still have bales ready to be collected. I remembered sketching these last year when I left it a little long and nearly missed them so I have got in there early this year. Always such beautiful colours especially in evening light although these are in the early afternoon.

Week 31, 2017 Colour sketch challenge

Pakefield Groynes

With my delivery date looming fast for my forthcoming exhibition this weeks sketch is very close to home just up the road on Pakefield Beach. These groynes are up near to the Jolly Sailors with high tide just past they were reasonably well covered.
