Thanks to Gabi my technical issues have been resolved and here I am with some holiday sketches from north Cornwall. Yesterday I got the Black Tor ferry across the Camel estuary from Rock on our sleepy side of the water, across to Padstow where celebrity chef Rick Stein has been integral to regenerating this small fishing port as a serious tourist destination. Padstow harbour on a Sunday afternoon in August is picture postcard perfect, crammed with tourists. Almost too much to draw! My fixation with drawing tramlines and complex city stuff translates itself into masts, flags and and general harbour-side clutter. I reluctantly save fish and chips for another day but can't resist Roskilly clotted cream Cornish ice cream, and it's delicious...a perfect holiday treat. Anyway back to the sketches...here are two drawings from the same view point sitting on the harbour wall looking to the inner harbour. See the Tia and Paul influenced skies!
Then, dodging rain showers, a quick sketch outside the famous Rick Stein Seafood Restaurant. Great roof terrace, might do some sketching there tomorrow. And finally, back on the harbour wall, this time looking out towards the outer harbour. No time to add paint today as didn't want to miss the last ferry back to Rock, but will return! Bye for now.
