An exhibition of beautiful coastal paintings by Norfolk artist Patrick Boswell is being staged at The Creake Abbey Café, near Burnham Market.

These celebrated depictions of the North Norfolk countryside will be on display until early June and all works are for sale.

Patrick Boswell is renowned for his ability to recreate the extraordinary light and colour of the North Norfolk coastline and its nearby villages. One of the most appealing characteristics of his colourful oil paintings is their unique immediacy and energy, a characteristic more normally associated with watercolours.

He depicts a wide range of well-known coastal favourites such as Holkham, Brancaster, Blakeney, Salthouse, Thornham and Burnham Overy Staithe. His works follow in the tradition of famous artists who have previously immortalised this area’s beautiful landscape: Edward Seago, with his coastal paintings of Walcot and Waxham, Paul Darley’s paintings of beach scenes at Cromer and Jack Cox’s paintings of the harbour at Wells.

The Patrick Boswell show is the latest in a series of exhibitions held at the Creake Abbey Café & Food Hall. The café will host a collection of paintings by Pat Bustin from June 3 to September 8 and will welcome Mary MacCarthy’s works from September 9 to next January 2016.
