This painting is one of four created during the Plein Air painting competition: Paint out Norwich. The location is the area known as Tombland, looking towards the Edith Cavel Pub.
It received an honourable mention from one of the judges, the artist Colin Self, who said that he
“couldn’t believe that somebody sitting there engaging with the real had made a work that to him transported him into a really hallucinogenic dream state, there was something other worldly about it, he was struck powerfully by it, whatever the artist’s intention.”
I was delighted with the comments, as I have been painting from dreams recently, and looking at Chagall’s paintings. It’s now something I intend to develop further.
The painting sold for £130 at auction.
