Yesterday I joined a group from Hornsea Art Society visiting Spurn Point. We were shown around by the artist in residence, Larry Malkin, who proved to be a fount of knowledge on history and was able to show us his own really powerful pieces completed while working at the point. The light and sense of space is incredible. I have included a few of the images I took to try to give you an idea of the wide open beauty of the place. It is a lonely beauty though and there is something curiously touching about the small pieces of debris from human and animal life washed up on the tideline that seems to extend forever around the point. There is much evidence of the battering the sea has given the area over time, including the road which has washed into the sand at some points on the journey to the point which is undertaken in an amazing high jeep type vehicle. We had plenty of time to sketch as well as to take photographs and I have now a wonderful resource that I will return to when painting over the coming months. below I show my sketches and the photos of the same scenes as well as the wider images mentioned above.
