Places I would like to be – St Ives in Cornwall
I have visited St Ives quite a few times over the years but suddenly today I thought I would paint a watercolour of the town.
It is a lovely spot and of course all of Cornwall is great to visit, not only for the scenery but also the food and restaurants too.
it didn’t turn our quite as I had planned it but I hope you will enjoy seeing it anyway.
Other paintings that I have completed over the years of Cornish scenes can be seem by clicking the Category tabs on this page.
“Sunlight on the Pond”
With windy weather keeping me at home I thought I might paint a larger watercolour of trees and a pond
I woke up with this image whizzing round my head so that seemed a good excuse to have ago.
I do find painting at larger sizes quite challenging and this sheet of Arches paper is 22 inches by 15, and very nice to work with as it holds the water very well for long periods of time.
So here it is and I have added below two more versions of it cropped to different sizes below.
I can’t decide which version I prefer but if you have any thoughts on this I would be delighted to hear them
Just don’t ask where the pond is though!
Sunset at Leeds Castle in Kent
Just a bit of an experiment
A quick watercolour of Leeds Castle in Kent as evening falls
I thought I would post it, any comment would as always be welcome
