Enough of my waffling to hide the fact that I didn't go there today... Thanks very much to Jackie for the photos.
Based on the seawall at Slaughden,I took my landscape sketchbook, watercolours and a fine (0.1) pen to produce the three sketches below:
1. Looking north towards the Brudenell and Thorpeness in the distance
2. Looking inland across the River Alde
3. Looking south towards the Martello tower - minus the parked cars on the sea wall!'
The weather was gorgeous.... although it did dry the paints up rather quickly
First drawing in pen. Second picture is watercolour. It needs some more work on it as I ran out of time. We then finished the afternoon at The Brudenell again before heading off home.
Next week is the Mid Suffolk Light Railway. Have a good week until then.
