Beautiful Boscastle

Boscastle Morning Photo

Sifting through my photos on a rainy afternoon, selecting some for a Very Exciting new project! Thought you might like to see some.

The artist is recovering and will be back at her easel shortly.

And some good news – I’ve been chosen to join the Gwynngala group. Feeling very honoured and pleased.

Hope you have a good weekend.

Exhibition Paintings

Cornish landscape paintings Wellington Hotel Boscastle exhibition

Didn’t have time to post these before putting up my exhibition, and I’ve been very busy ever since. So – now – here are some of my paintings in their beautiful new frames, now hanging in splendour in the lovely Wellington Hotel in Boscastle.

I’ve previously had only white frames, but am moving towards having different colours. I think the frames above work well, though the fact that there are different frames does make hanging an exhibition a little more difficult, in that there’s one more thing to consider.  But I guess it’s not so different from a group show, where there tends to be a mix of frames and treatments. I wonder if it matters to the person buying the painting?

Sketching in Bude

Bude Sketch

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.

Acrylic Painting

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.
