Burnham Overy Staithe

It is very good Colin, a looser style than usual.

Lovely watercolour, Colin. Terrific sky. Very atmospheric.

I thought the same as Seth - very atmospheric with a great sky.

This is so atmospheric, i love it... it reminds me of my last visit to Norfolk...and Burnham itself...wet windy and freezing Ill have to get cracking and do some pictures of it too! you've inspired me!!! Thanks, Colin!

Beautiful, love the sky, light on the buildings and foreground!

Lovely painting Colin and very atmospheric
