Broadland artist David Dane has been forecd to stop painting due to his faling eyesight.
He said: “I never had particularly good sight but it has now deteriorated to a point where I find it virtually impossible to do the quality of work I used to. I’m not prepared to show paintings that are inferior.

“My work is somewhere between very atmospheric and detailed and when you paint sails of a mill or rigging on a yacht it has to be pretty accurate otherwise people will say it’s not right.”

Mr Dane moved from Kent to Norfolk as a child in 1949 and immediately fell in love with the Broads.
