Here is a ‘blast from the past’, some of my many oil paintings on the subject of Norfolk and its beaches. The one above is of the beach huts at Wells.

Below is an interpretation of the beach at Heacham, near King’s Lynn.

Poem: At Cromer

boatsoffcromer©dfbarker

When I look down toward the beach,
the distant pier seems to stride
forward from the shining sea.
I like to look beyond,
to the bands of turquoise and blue,
an ocean painted in bold,
abandoned strokes.

Why are we drawn to the waves?
Those elemental rhythms,
sounds and colours
of a primary world,
where sparse pointillist spots
busy themselves on
yellow-ochre sands.

Some days the morning
unfolds through mists,
groynes spacing out
the distances along the strand,
until a final fade-out,
well before the sea
can meet the sky.

Overhead, pterodactyl shapes
patrol against fresh patches
of blue. As I approach,
the blurred semblances
of buildings appear, rectangles
feathered violet or grey,
as if stepping off the cliff.

Wells Next The Sea, Morning Colour

Image ©Copyright Francis Barker

The North Norfolk coast is one of my favourite subjects, as it is for many artists, both now and in the past. The harbour at Wells is a particular favourite, especially early morning, or late at night. Misty conditions are equally atmospheric.

This painting has been completed in acrylic on stretched canvas, about 605 x 455 mm. If you are interested in buying the painting, please contact me on francisbarkerart@gmail.com
