I am taking part in the ‘Paint Out Norwich 2018‘ en plein air painting competition along with 35 other artists. We started on Saturday (13 Oct) with three sessions (morning, afternoon and nocturne) on each of Saturday & Sunday and continuing with 2 sessions a day into Wednesday, 17 Oct. Each day is themed – ‘Market & People’ Saturday ‘Medieval’ Sunday, ‘Modernising’ Monday, ‘Museums & Education’ Tuesday, with a kind of free-for-all Wednesday. Then there is an exhibition of the artists paintings in the Norwich Cathedral Hostry that runs to 28 Oct as part of the Hostry Festival. This follows a private view and awards event on Wednesday evening, so if you are in Norwich at all in that time you will be able to see the wide range of work that we are all producing.
There are also a series of workshops and talks that we can attend. Its really quite exhausting and I’m just taking a break to post this before heading off to the evenings events.
The two works here are of Norwich Cathedral, completed in the Sunday morning and nocturne sessions – the morning view is from the south of the cathedral (from the Lower Close) and the nocturne view is looking from the north-east.
