Week 45, 2017 Colour sketch challenge

Looking across to Kessingland from Pakefield

This is a view that I often admire, usually sat outside the Jolly Sailors! It is always an ever changing scene with the light as it stretches the 3 miles to Kessingland. This was from around midday when the light was so very good and the sea was so calm.

Week 37, 2017 Colour sketch challenge

Walking into the wind

Painted mid week on the promenade at Pakefield just below “The Jolly sailors” at the tail end of storm Aileen. The dog walkers were all heads down in the strong winds. I was fortunate to be in the lea of the cliff out of the wind. By now the sea had calmed down from it’s rage earlier in the morning.

Pakefield Sheep

These two sheep can be found in the graveyard of All Saints and St Margaret, Pakefield Parish Church. Two rather plump well fed sheep with plenty of grass to feed on.


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.
