Painting and drawing out in Kings Lynn

Drawing by Peter Brown

A group of members met up on a lovely sunny day on 8th June to do some painting and drawing ‘en plein air’ around King’s Lynn. We met up at the iconic Custom House and then set off to find a good spot – some of us stayed more or less where we were while others wandered along the river and found interesting views there.

Working To A Theme – Lynn’s Fisher Fleet

For the past eighteen years I have been painting and drawing on Fisher Fleet, a little-known part of Lynn’s vast docks complex. Strangely, many Lynn locals are totally unaware of the Fleet’s existence! 
I was first told of its whereabouts some 40 odd years ago by an artist friend who lived in Leicester!
It’s the creek where all the local fishermen moor their boats and an absolute heaven of endless images for the artist.
Colour, pattern and unusual shapes wherever you look; all ever-changing due to tides and weather. It’s also a graveyard for several old wooden fishing vessels which are left on the inner banks to rot away slowly.

Art is All Around

Artspace on the Prom

I can’t exactly remember how I heard about the Cromer Artspace but when I did, I just had to go see it. I love Cromer with its wild, wind swept sea, so there was no holding me back. Although I’ve been to Cromer countless times, I was surprised at discovering this gorgeous Art Deco building fused into the cliff at the end of Cromer’s West Prom.
