We weren't quite expecting the response we got. Well over twenty people said that they would be coming so I phoned the pub, The Jolly Sailors to reserve a couple of their large tables.
Things get in the way and other things crop up so in the end fifteen artists convened at Brancaster.
As I still can't drive, Frank dropped me off after a lovely relaxing weekend at our cottage on the N Norfolk coast (Haidee was taking me home).
Although I am not in a wheelchair anymore, I didn't think it was wise to stand for too long so had to sit to paint
I did two paintings from this position. I would have preferred to move but the effort was too much to think about
Time flew by - time for the pub!!
Lunch at the Jolly Sailors
We had a great time getting to know all the newbies and chatting about painting. I was impressed at far some people had traveled. We had people from Brighton, Grantham, Cambridge, Lincoln, London and Bungay
After lunch some of us went and painted from the common. Why had I never been there before? The views were stunning and the light was just right. Clouds casting shadows with bursts of sunlight.
We didn't have long as the light was fading so managed this quicky.
Cloud Shadows over Brancaster
There was a fantastic sunset but we had to hit the road and admire it whilst driving. I am looking forward to the next meet up. I'm sure most of the group will return too
