Here I am again ages since my last post. Where do the days go?
Clive went away for a week by the sea in the Med and the time just flew by. Half way through Laura and Wayne came over with the girls for a day and night, and then left the girls with me for 5 days so they could have a little break together travelling and staying around Norfolk and Suffolk. There are so many wonderful places to visit. The girls and I had a lovely time particularly our day at the seaside at Mundsley - I'll post some of the lovely photos I took of them playing in the sea and of the local surfers one day soon. Before we knew it , it was time to go to the airport to pick grandad up. On the Monday I took them home to meet up with Laura in time for her birthday on the Tuesday.
So, the only thing I have to show you is two small watercolours I did from photos taken at Wells Next the Sea North Norfolk coast. I needed to mount them up for a gallery browser of coastal scenes.
Here's number one - a memory of a weekend at Sandra's cottage when we strolled into the quayside to watch the boats come in. This one had landed crabs and quite a crowd (I only used a few figures) was watching them unload. Number two is of a day spent on the beach sketching with Anita where some children were playing cricket by the beach huts. Afraid I made a mess of the little girls face so she doesn't look as young as she actually was - probably playing with her elder brother. It was a lovely afternoon together and I tried to sketch the beach huts in their glorious full row that seems to go on for ever. The main problem both times was trying to get in all the steps and railings.
