Sail on the Norfolk Broads

Small w/c 7ins x 6ins from a photo sent to me by my friend Linda in East Anglia. Used only three colours altogether, Payne's Grey, Raw Umber and Olive Green. Hopefully will get to visit the area at some stage in the future as it looks so beautiful.

Out walking last week I passed this well-known landmark and did a quick pencil sketch from which I completed this painting yesterday. It's on Saunders Waterford 300lb rough paper and measures 7.5ins x 11.5 ins.
