When we lived in the Fens, we were near many orchards and, in fact, our home was called Cherry trees. This little gem 7" square was inspired by our happy times there through the wonder of memories and imagination . As usual, acrylic inks on Lana Vanguard.

When sketching with Anita at Holkham Beach, noticed people making their way along the path at the back of the beach which leads in an hour's quiet stroll to Wells next the sea. Understand it is part of the Norfolk Coastal Path. This painting is acrylic ink on Lana Vanguard sized 12" x 8" and I will be submitting to the selection panel of the Norwich Art Circle for exhibition in the Forum. The reddish coloured beach depicts the special kind of vegetation found in this area by the sea. Maybe a type of seaweed.

Another 'little gem'  5" square acrylic ink work on Lana Vanguard.

Its sad to say that many of the cliffs along the north coast of Norfolk are crumbling away, as in many parts of our lovely English coastline.  Every so often from Hunstanton along to Cromer and beyond these gorgeous red and white cliffs can be seen in this state of erosion.

My series of 'little gems' grows almost daily and here is the latest based on the many silver birch saplings in the woods I constantly drive past as I leave home on my various trips.  This one is a 5" square created with poured inks with selected opposing  colours and textured by using waxed paper.

I have been creating a series of small acrylic inks called 'little gems' sometimes landscape, sometimes gardens or water. Here is the latest only 9" x 6" using wax wrap and cling film to create textures.  Great fun. They sometimes get scrapped when they don't materialise into anything worthwhile but I thought this turned out ok.
