A Weekend in Cornwall

Recently we were able to spend a long weekend in Cornwall, firstly with some good friends in Rock, and then at a lovely hotel at Carbis Bay near St Ives.

Cornwall has the loveliest coast and wonderful little harbours and towns dotted along the spectacular cliffs and bays.

There wasn’t much time to paint but here are the few that I managed to get done both during and since the visit.

You could spend a lifetime exploring the coast of Cornwall, so these few days were great reminder of holidays of many years ago, and an opportunity to enjoy our friends’ company and eat some great food.

If you are going to St Ives do look up the Boskerris Hotel, really very nice indeed.

From a genuine Rick Stein Cornish pasty in Padstow to exceptional food at Nathan Outlaw’s restaurant in Rock this was very enjoyable weekend, and we were fairly lucky with the weather too!

I hope you too like these paintings of the area. I don’t think I can quite get to the standard of the galleries in St Ives but painting these watercolours was great fun.

Enjoy your travels too!
