In sombre mood today.
The passing of someone dear.
Just to let you know I’ll be moving house over the next few weeks, and without internet, so blogging may be intermittent. Please bear with me. Normal service will be resumed as soon as possible. Once a week on a Friday. Or thereabouts. I’m an artist – what can I say?
Thanks for your interest and support – I really appreciate it.
Hope you have a good weekend. I’ll be out doing some walking.
Beeny Cliffs, Boscastle – Colour Sketch
I’m on the move to a new home and busy packing up. Came across some of my old sketchbooks: it was so good looking through them, and it passed a happy hour when I should have been packing! I’ve filled hundreds of sketchbooks over the years, but I don’t keep them all: space issues and fairly frequent moves make that impractical. So I keep the special ones – those packed full of goodness, or those which bring back a special time, perhaps a holiday or a turning point.
And curiously, I came across the sketch below, from 2005, which is to be the view from my new house. I can’t wait!
St Materiana Church, Tintagel – Sketchbook Drawing
Boscastle Coast Plein Aire Sketch
Love the colours on this one. And it takes me back to sitting on the cliffs, being buffeted by the breeze, and enjoying the wonderful views and coastline here. I can almost hear the seagulls…
South of Boscastle
Mixed Media Painting by Anita Langham
Today was this sort of day – an icecream and sunshine and lazing kind of day.
Hope you have a lovely, lovely weekend.And if you’re lucky enough to be in Cornwall, pop into the Wellington Hotel Boscastle for a cold Korev or Rattler, and take a look at my paintings (including the one above) upstairs in the Minstrels Gallery.
Coast, Boscastle – Sketchbook Study, Pen & Watercolour
Bright skies yesterday, with wonderful warm sunshine.
One day sun, next day rain…
Hope you’re having a happy Sun-day!
Drawing of Stile on Cornwall coast path, Tintagel castle
Only time to post a quick drawing this week. No time for painting, alas, or walking. Just toiling for the man. But next week – ah, I will be strolling in the sunshine!
Hope you enjoy your weekend.
‘Shore’ – Pencil drawing on paper ( 16.6×18 ins / 42×46 cm )
Here’s one of my drawings from a while back. Still one of my favourites. It’s pretty abstracted, but it always reminds me of rocks and the flotsam on the shore, so I gave it a title. Maybe I’ll get around to framing it sometime (the frame here is virtual, not real, alas.) It’s quite a large drawing, and I’d really like to do some more like that. I’ve just ordered some large size heavyweight paper, so maybe I will.
I’m taking part in an exhibition by my art group – Gwynngala – over the Easter weekend at Cowslips Studio, Launceston, North Cornwall . There’ll be paintings and quilts and textile art (including some new work of mine!). They have a wonderful cafe with excellent food, too. Worth a visit.
