some sunsets in cornwall
these are a few of the sunsets seen from the windows of 'our' flat - the cloud formations were often fabulous. This one is low tide with the light reflecting off the pools and shallow water at the edge of the surf.
The strange rectangle in this one is from the mirror on the wall behind, reflecting the light onto the glass.
Between the photos and my sketches I'm hoping to paint a few sunsets :) - the problem with photos is that they can't cope with the tonal range that he human eye can - metering to get the sunset colour means losing detail in the cliffs, rocks and foreground - there wasn't much as the light was going but there was more than this. Putting colours down in a sketch in this light was interesting - the colours were far too lurid when looked at in the morning! they'll need toning down quite a bit.
I'll be putting more photos of Cornwall on my photography website bit by bit - http://sitekreator.com/vivien/cornwall.html
