St Margarets Church

I was asked to paint St Margaret’s Church in High Halstow by the friends of St Margarets. The painting is in acrylics on stretched canvas 59 x 42cm.

St Margarets is a very old church, built in the 10th century. It is always a choice of which elevation to paint . I chose this view………….

Talland Bay, Cornwall

Roger Dellar carried out a workshop yesterday at the Greyfriars Centre in Ringwood which I attended. He is a very accomplished artist and it was a very good all day workshop which had a theme of coastal scenes with rocks etc.

I painted a view I have been longing to tackle – Talland Bay from a photograph I took and I learnt a lot during the day, he is a very good teacher and I can recommend him to anyone thinking of attending any of his workshops or painting holidays.

Sea pinks

One of the most pleasing sights around our coastal paths are the sea pinks that grow all around the rocks in nooks and crannies providing a carpet of the most gorgeous pink flowers. I use cadmium red and cobalt violet with titanium white to create their unique colour.

Mullion

Walking round the Lizard, Cornwall from west to east brings you to the very small harbour of Mullion. When we were there the sea was rough and waves were occasionally crashing over the outer wall. Unfortunately the only other couple that was there at this time seemed unaware of the danger and before we could warn them a wave crashed against the outer wall, reared up and fell down onto the woman knocking her to the floor and pushing her towards the inner harbour. Needless to say we helped them off the outer wall to safety.   Sam_3317

Later on this small fisherman’s hut took my attention and I had to paint it. What an amazing place.

Milford on Sea, Hampshire

 

Just to the south of Ringwood lies Milford on Sea milford on seawhich is a great place to walk and admire the distant views of the Isle of Wight which is at its closest hereabouts. The cliffs are fragile but the local beach hut owners know how to enjoy their beach which is delightfully  uncommercialised.
