Revisiting an area in changing light: studies of the cliffs near Hells Mouth in watercolour and mixed media
2 studies from the clifftop between Hells Mouth and Portreath in different light, watercolour/mixed media in S&B Delta sketchbook
I do love the changing light and the different colours and moods. I could paint along here again and again through the seasons and each image would be different. Flowers, sea colour, skies always new.
There was a massive cliff fall at Hells Mouth that I didn't know about until I got home - thankfully! Video here - do watch, it gives an idea of the scale and drama.
I ended up mostly using my watercolours on this trip for some reason, though I had taken oils and used them a little. I made the decision early on to mainly work in the S&B sketchbook and fill it, which I did :>) rather than try to complete larger works in changing light. I can work from these sketches at home to produce the larger works, with time to consider format/medium etc at leisure.
Already I'm considering lengthening the format - putting the above sketch through the Etchings app and then adding sketchy continuation to it as an idea for development.
It could be extended on the left as well for a long landscape format.
Decisions, decisions .....
what do you think?
