Bricks on the beach

Bricks on the beach


This is one of the rare occasions when I paint from a photograph – in this case a massive chunk of brickwork on the beach at Happisburgh on the east coast of Norfolk. It’s part of the remains of a house long-since washed down the cliffs. Many years of erosion have smoothed the surface right down and I wanted to capture if I could the abstract pattern of the joints and the shine of sunlight on the surface water. It was a pleasure to paint in a very limited palette of reds with a touch of muted green. Overall size 31″ x 14″
