New Year visiting coast

The first two pics follow on from previous blog last year.
The white painted drift wood was found on Dunwich beach I think the wood works well with the piece made from gaffer tape, sand, etc.

The second piece uses another found piece of wood found on the tide line along with the mussel shells I love the strip of blue paint on the wood and the holes which are convenient to hang the piece from.

Last weekend I spent a couple of days at the coast staying at The Crown at Westelton a big treat we went for a walk along the beach at  Covehythe to take pictures of cliff etc it is a while since we visited it the erosion is really marked since our last walk there. I am planning to use the pics of cliff, church along with found objects as inspiration for some new work.

The Church on the approach to Covehythe village. The markings on and the texture,and colouring of the field is inspiring. The line of trees  are dwarfed by the impressive church tower. Access to the beach is discouraged so we had to walk along the nearby footpath.

A church within a much larger original church.

Erosion on cliff
