… lets try again

Good old WordPress app. I uploaded the app as apparently you can now see images as you post them (instead of a string of computer code), and created the previous post ‘and mud, sand and stones’. Then I published it, only to discover the image sizes were all over the place and one (on my screen anyway) was stretched out of all proportion. So I’ve deleted it and here it is again… looks like future posts will have to be done on our laptop or via BlogPadPro as previously.
Anyway, where was I? oh yes…

Recent workbook sketches from a trip last week to Burnham Overy Marsh on the north Norfolk coast, in cold winds, grim sky and mist (the forecast said ‘fair’).

… and mud, stones and sand

More playing around in my workbook this week after an overcast, misty and very cold trip up to Burnham Overy Marsh on the north Norfolk coast earlier in the week.

creeks and marshes …

A few recent workbook spreads and a collage/mixed media piece. I’m trying to get a handle on my current obsession, Burnham Overy Marsh and creek on the north Norfolk coast.

I love the expanse of sand and mud when the tide retreats, the marks left by wading birds, the dark breakwaters and remains of bank supports, channel markers tilting at the sky, sunlit drainage channels lined with reeds and broken fencing, bright light on water.
