A Visit to Perranporth

My middle daughter and her boyfriend moved to Perranporth earlier this year and this weekend was spent having a lovely time with them there. We were so very lucky with the weather!
 It was warm and sunny with flowers still in bloom,

with dappled light through sunlit trees.
We visited the nearby St Agnes beach. Can you see how my painting was inspired by her hairstyle?

The rock textures reminded me of Lego.



I love to be by the sea-side :)

and I think someone else does too, although she wouldn't admit it!
Such treasures,
and I couldn't resisit drawing in that smooth sand!

The day ended with a long walk along Perranporth beach.
It was like a dream.

wow.. those photographs are literally heavenly! your charming illustration and the one in the sand too are lovely.
many moons ago, i used to paint(self-taught). but somehow i kind of lost it and got on with other things. the more i visit you here, the more i think i would like to go back to it. i don't feel very confident though, as i am sooo rusty :/
i do admire you work very much. you are one of my topmost favourite artists xxx i enjoy your blog and photos too :)
