Gary Haigh Smith
Born in Norfolk Gary works from memory. Walking along the coast and just observing with a view to putting it into a piece of work. Far better than taking a snap or fighting with a canvas in a Norfolk easterly! He doesn’t always paint what’s there, but what you want to be there in that vista. His test of a good Norfolk seascape is getting up in the morning, making a pot of tea, sitting looking at the painting on the wall and thinking ‘I want to be there‘ he says.
