Cornwall sketches July 2014

Godrevey Lighthouse , watercolour/mixed media in S&B Delta sketchbook

A chance to sketch fairly intensively on a trip to Cornwall.  Happy.

I was feeling very rusty, particularly with oils as life has been hectic and I haven't had much time lately for plein air sketching.

There was plenty of passing cloud and the day was windy, the sea intensely blue.  This is a corner of Cornwall I wasn't familiar with, so it was lovely to discover new places.  There were so many beautiful spots to paint within a very small distance from where we were staying.

I was painting from the Towans Cornish for dunes - most of the coast has cliffs but being on an estuary (St Ives is across the bay), there is a large area of high, grassy, shrub and flower covered dunes. the highest in Europe apparently.

More to follow ....
