Sea Sketch

Third and final post for today. I'm not as prolific as this many posts would make it seem ! Just that quite a lot of things got finished today. I went down to Cape Cornwall today and absorbed the magnificent way the sea was roiling along and crashing on the rocks. I painted this in the studio to remind me what it was like. This is the only thing done from start to finish today.

It's also an hommage to Jim Wright, a painter and musician friend who was down there doing the real thing with a big painting board acting almost like a sail. What he was doing inspired me. You can see his work : HERE

It's the lower end of Kenidjack castle from Cape Cornwall.

Acrylic approx 6"x6"

  1. I know Cape Cornwall, though have never seen it under recent conditions. Your sketch gives such a strong sense of how it must have looked and felt.

    Looking forward to seeing your work in Mining for Meaning. Are you continuing with the mines project?

    1. It was pretty wild out there Mary. The energy was amazing...

      The Mines project is indeed what I'm going to be doing in the Mining for Meaning class. It is a HUGE project as I have literally hundreds of photographs, drawings etc to work from, so I'll just see how it goes.
