Lane leading down to Pendeen, watercolour/mixed media, in 12x9inch Canson sketchbook, Vivien Blackburn
I love the lanes leading down off the moor, seeing the sea ahead, the horizon often indistinct - a blur of blueness.
Hedges, stone walls covered with banked earth, stones show through in places, bushes and hundreds of wild flowers, towering above your head; quick glimpses of fields or sea through gateways, small stone farmhouses and ruined mine engine houses - the view changes with every twist in the road.
On the hillside to the left you can just see Pendeen lighthouse, the one I sketched close up.
I've kept this Canson sketchbook just for sketching in Cornwall and it's like revisiting when I flip through.
