Mud and wind in Norfolk

Reflections at low tide, Brancaster Staithe
At low tide at Brancaster Staithe in Norfolk the colours and reflections in the wet mud are stunning. We were blessed again with a bright but cold day, it was extremely windy though! To counteract the effects of the wind I positioned myself in front of a wall, had my tripod legs spread wide and my bag of paints hanging from the tripod as a weight. Still, it was very tricky to attempt straight lines!
I deliberately pushed the boat up and out of the top of the painting because I wanted to focus attention on the reflections beneath and the weight and bulk of the boat. The buoys provided a nice couple of bright spots amongst all the gorgeous greys.

  3. Bonjour chère amie,

    Il est toujours très intéressant d'avoir le point de vue en photo de vos compositions... Quelle merveilleuse peinture. J'ose imaginer la gêne du vent pour peindre !... Vous avez beaucoup de mérite.
    J'aime tous les reflets dans votre peinture... Une très belle harmonie de couleurs.

    Gros bisous


Thank you for your words!
