Perranporth Beach

This is the last piece I have done for my Drawing Course "Buildings in the Landscape".  I have now signed up for the "Seascapes" Course, which looks very challenging.  These courses have been a godsend for me, now that I can't get out much.

New Watercolour Canvas

These two pictures are painted on commercially prepared canvas and then sprayed with a fixative.  They do not need to be put behind glass and so can be hung directly on to a wall.


This was associated with fertility.  Women who wanted babies and farmers who wanted a good harvest would climb through the hole.
Lanyon Quoit

This was a burial chamber.

Stokesby, Norfolk Broads.

This is painted from one of the photographs I took while on holiday with the family in 2008!

Glenfeadon Castle, Portreath.

This is for the Exhibition too.  I did it as part of my drawing course.

Loe Pool

I think this would make a nice pair with the Helford River for our Art Exhibition.

Helford River

Only about eight weeks to go until our Annual Art Exhibition!  This will be one of my exhibits.  I took this photo from Cornwall Cam and I hope I have caught its air of tranquillity.

Cascade of Cans

I saw this photo on Cornwall Cam and just had to paint it!

Mother Love

These seals were seen in Mutton Cove, Godrevy.


I received this fun certificate after completing the Beginners Course.  I have now started on the Advanced Course and am awaiting the return of my first lot of homework.

Lesson Seven - Gone for Coffee!

Draw from memory or imagination.

Lesson Six

No pencil to be used!  A watersoluble pen was used for this lesson.

Lesson Five

Looking at little things and drawing them larger than life.

Lesson Four - Self Portrait

This is nothing like me but my tutor doesn't know that!
