pochade oil painting at WellsPainted in early October in the last of the warm spell of weather we have had in the UK, this pochade oil painting on board is of the quayside at Wells-next-the-Sea, a rather charmingly named leisure port on the North Norfolk coast. In the summer it is busy with visitors, but it is still a lively recreational and commercial fishing centre.

I stood on the quayside and painted for about 45 minutes during which time the brisk wind changed the sky and lighting in quick succession. When I took this photograph the sky had almost cleared of clouds in marked contrast to when I started.

I spent another hour on this painting when I returned to the studio.
