Evening Primrose at Crow.

I attended an interesting walk and talk arranged by the Braunton Countryside Centre about the Second World War and the Burrows. I sketched a quick picture of the waterside as I’ve never seen so many Evening Primrose plants in flower. Quite an unusual light this morning quite humid, it reminded me of that Monsoon type light. I was amazed at the amount of Evening Primrose in bloom, the flowers looked even brighter against the dark sky.
This morning there was an enjoyable walk arranged by the Braunton Countryside Center it was about the Burrows and it’s World War Two usage for the D Day Landings. Many Americans were trained here for beach assault the person who lead the walk and talk was by Richard Bass a WW2 Historian from the Assault Training Centre Friends. If you can get onto one of these walks it’s well worth the effort. Al

Oyster Falls.

A day off and it’s raining like a monsoon so I decided to do an acrylic sketch of Oyster Falls at Croyde in North Devon, 650 x 450mm. I find it quite difficult to keep my brushstrokes honest and succinct so by using this type of sketch work I attempt to escape my more illustrative style.
I like placing vapour trails in some of my skies, it’s a sort of reminder of my past travels and adventures. Al
