CORNWALL REVISITED

Two weeks later I had to  return to Cornwall so grabbed the opportunity to  paint when I could.


Did two studies of the  harbour at Portscatho near Falmouth.  It was a wonderful breezy day with  sharp clear light,. The sea in  so many blues and full of energy in the sunlight.

Another speedy oil-sketch above, attempt to  catch something of the scene


... and  a view form my friends veranda, the estuary of the River Fowey, looking across towards a china clay loading factory where huge ships arive to  take  the clay. There  is one docked there,  the prow can just be seen on the RH side past the trees, green and dull red above  the waterline, it  needs slightly enhancing to make it more noticeable. The tide was out but also my supply of white paint so I could't render the foreground as well as I'd have liked.
