David Britton's Session sketches

Mersea artist David Britton and his wife Rachel are frequent visitors to the Session. You may have noticed that David usually has his sketchbook and charcoal at the ready. He recently allowed me to scan some of the drawings he's made on Thursday nights - and here they are:

David is best known for his wonderful large-scale landscape oil paintings, of which the one below was a finalist in the Daily Mail 'Not the Turner Prize' competition 2003, it's entitled 'Low Tide, Mersea Island':

You can see more of David's paintings at the Art Cafe , where a book featuring his poems and paintings is also available.

(On Saturday 12th February next year, David's sequence of readings and music - "The Land and the Sea" - will be performed at St Peter's Church, West Mersea, with Greg and John Leyland, amongst others, providing the music. More details on the News page in due course. )
