Excellent condition
Wesson’s spontaneous and rapid plein-air sketching technique is amply demonstrated in this watercolour of the Broads, with its graphic brushwork over the slightest under-drawing. The paper still carries the edges of the brown sticky paper used to stretch it onto the drawing board, with the paint carrying onto these margins. Wesson is the master of depicting water beneath the immensity of the East Anglian sky, with its softly brilliant diffused light. The wetness of the tranquil water gleams from the paper, between the strong perspectival recession of riverbank and moored boats.
