WHAT'S BEEN HAPPENING?

Great news. I have been lucky enough to have some of my work displayed for sale by Pocock’s the Artmonger, in Burnham Market.

Earlier in June, we travelled to Norfolk for a week of creativity on the Norfolk Broads and also visited Burnham Market, to deliver some paintings.


The Artmonger is ‘tucked down North Street, a few steps along the main road from the Market Place, this is a real treasure trove for art-lovers with dozens and dozens of works always on show both in the gallery and in the upstairs room of

the adjoining shop, Hamilton Antiques’


SOME OF THE WORKS AVAILABLE FROM POCKOCK’S. Please email laurajpocock@yahoo.co.uk if you are interested in purchasing these paintings


The Norfolk Broads was a real treat, and I managed to do a little sketching and preparatory work towards a next

series of paintings.

This was helped by the fact that I have bought a drone – to collect aerial views of the landscapes I am painting.


WORK IN PROGRESS FROM MY SKETCHBOOKS ON THE BOAT


The artist Peter Lanyon (1918 to 1964) was an abstract landscape painter who was also a glider, and used his gliding experience to view the landscape from the air. As I am a massive fan, (but I am not a glider!) I thought that buying a drone would be the next best thing – and I love it.
