St Ives sketch, watercolour and mixed media
St Ives. An illustrational one as a workout for a commission.
I need to do a large one of this beach for my daughter - a very overdue Christmas present!
Keeping track of those buildings and trying to distort it a little to make it wrap around was not the simplest! The big version won't be identical as it will evolve a life of its own though it will be similar - but she wants the family on the beach 'recognisable and flattering of all of them', while showing all the buildings etc .....!!! No pressure then.
This is small, in the S&B Delta sketchbook, A5. On this latest trip to Cornwall I used watercolours, pencil, coloured pencils, oil paint, ink, conte, gouache and more on various pages. It works with them all :>)
