Very wet and windy here this weekend. These little watercolour drawings of windswept Cornish trees I did a little while ago seem to express the feeling of being blown about and weathering the storms. Batten down the hatches.
Hope you’re cosy and warm wherever you are.
I’m very excited to be offering the first Art Holiday in the series:
‘Landscapes in Mixed Media’
7 – 9 November 2017
Want to learn something new, or just indulge your Inner Artist?
Explore the stunning North Cornwall coast for some sketchbook drawing, and then return back to base to create mixed media paintings. Enjoy also the specially designed ‘Leafscape’ workshop with experienced tutor Liz Gregory, who’ll show you how to use found natural materials to make eye-catching pictures.
Accommodation and full board included, as well as friendly expert tuition, materials and trips. Suitable for all levels.
Go to Boscastle Art Breaks, for more information and to book, or email me at boscastleartbreaks(at)gmail.com
And don’t worry if you can’t make the November one – I’ll be running the art break again in the springtime. Check the website for details.
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!
