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.
It’s been a slow week for painting – I went off for a mini-break to South Cornwall with my lovely man, and after that the week just vanished. So here’s one from the archive (as they say!) – still one of my favourites. The painting was done entirely with a palette knife – I’ll try that again, as I really like the texture and the freedom it gives. And a nice reminder of summer, which we need on a day like today, when it’s wind and gales here.
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 …
Wild seas here yesterday.
Muse, magic, inspiration…
