Late evening on Southwold beach

A sultry evening with this sketch being finished at about 8:30 and the temperature still being 19C. An evening with a beautiful light although fading gradually. After a week  and especially a day of painting for the Suffolk Show a late last minute sketch where I have to confess I needed an uncomplicated subject. Having said that the light was so special a complicated landscape was not required.

Benacre Beach

I visited yesterday and felt sure I had the view that I wanted to paint. I returned today and the different light that was so inspiring the day before presented a different scene today, it is strange how that happens. However at Benacre Broad there is always inspiration for me to find and the trees that have fallen from the eroded cliffs and lie on the beach still remained my interest although I had to re orientate to find the right light. It was a windy but sunny day and I had to use a bungy rope to anchor my easel to a piece of tree to prevent it being blown away.

River Waveney, Bungay

This view is from the banks of the River Waveney between the Staithe and Falcon bridge in Bungay. A view across the river where the main subject is the little rowing boat moored up in the water, the water itself is deep green being in the shade of the trees. No kingfishers but a visit from a mallard withe a large brood of very young chicks.
