This pastel painting was painted insitu along a marsh near Blakeney Harbour. The work was completed quickly due to the threat of an incoming storm behind me.

I love wide the open spaces and ‘huge skies’ along Norfolk coast. I had spent a week there on this trip - this scene represented one of the rare sunny moments of my trip and I was keen to try capture it.

I used soft pastels (Unison) over a sheet of Colourfix paper which had been painted flat with a mix of red acrylic and clear gesso to create a paintbrush texture.
