A Year in the Backwaters

16th June – 2nd Sept 18
Naze Tower, Walton-on-the-Naze, Essex

I have spent the last year observing the effect of the seasons on my favourite landscape – the Walton Backwaters.  In particular I have returned to one spot in Tiitchmarsh Marina. Here I have come to appreciate that the quiet beauty of an all grey mist in winter can be just as lovely as a technicolor summer sunset. Keeping an easel up in the wind can be just as difficult as the glare from the hot sun and beating the tide is a constant game!


From a brief snowfall to the bright yellow crops of summer, no two palettes are ever the same. I also continue with my fascination of trying to capture the energy of a wave – to make the structure correct but still not a static image.
