What a treat to have two weeks painting in Cornwall and The Cotswolds. Beautiful little villages, quaint stone buildings, historic old fishing ports and, amazingly, fantastic weather!

This beautiful old fishing boat was to be our painting subject, but the thought of being scrutinised by 20 painters was too much. She sailed off just as we were about to start!
Small boats ferrying visitors to St Michael’s Mount at high tide.
Painting from the Hoe, Plymouth – From here, Sir Francis Drake watched the Spanish Armada drift past the mouth of the harbour as he finished his game of bowls.
Looks like you had an enjoyable time in our area (the Cotswolds) and some reasonable weather.
It looks absolutely wonderful….wish I could afford to join one of your groups! I really admire your work.
I enjoy reading your posts. Would you mind if I used a couple of the photos in the email as subjects for my paintings?
Thanks for your comments.
As you can appreciate, there is a lot of cost and effort goes into collecting photographs for my work. I do this because I not only want to experience these places, but also have my own personal records for reference – hence the copyright on all images.
So, I’m sorry, but I cant let you use the images.

Your gorgeous photos show that your eye for light and composition aren’t limited to watercolors. Stunning post!
