It looked pretty much like this today. A little sketch showing the harbour mouth, with the fabulous slate rock. I love the colours when it rains – they have a depth and translucence to them. Hoping for some sunshine over the weekend, though.
Hope you have a good one.
Lizard Quay Boathouse – Painting in Progress
Only three days to go until my first ever solo exhibition. So excited! Trying to get this painting finished in time. Almost there!

It’ll be good to have you along.
And because it’s raining today, here’s one of my favourite paintings …
Mixed Media Painting
Acrylic & Mixed Media on Board 12 x 11 ins / 30 x 28 cm
Unframed £ 275
Just finished this Cornwall painting of Lizard Point Quay. Love the way the rich textures of the stonework and the vibrant blue-green colours of the boats and sea turned out. It’ll be available shortly – please message me soonest via the Contact Form if you’d like to reserve it.
Watercolour, 30 x 20 cm/11.5 x 8 ins
Bude was surprisingly green the other day. I drew this from the lovely Wroes coffee shop. My first time sketching in a café – only got a few strange looks! I had to wait until I got home to put the colour washes on – by the time I’d finished drawing, the view was obscured by rain. Bude’s still a great place to draw, though, even in the mizzle. You can see a couple of my other paintings of Bude here and here . Both are still available on my website should you be interested.
Thanks for looking, and hope you’re having a good weekend.
Windswept Tree – Sketchbook Drawing
The weather’s been good again here this week, so I did this little sketch outside, on the cliffs. I wanted to capture the way the wind blows the tree, and the strong shadows and colours – the wondrous blues, golds and russets at this time of year.
Hope you have a good weekend, notwithstanding …
Valency Valley, Autumn
One of my earlier paintings, and a particular favourite. It speaks to me of these golden days – warm days and cold nights, and the full moon rising tomorrow.
Tried to post picture of a little autumn painting I’m working on now, but the technology is against me today. Will try again tomorrow.
