I did two paintings on different days from the Levant cliffs (click images for larger versions):
'Towards Pendeen from Levant', 10x13in, oil on board
'Levant cliffs', 10x13in, oil on board
More cliff action was had at Botallack. Tim and I both took on the Crowns and again I found a spot in the shade behind some rocks to stop the sun shining on the work surface:
'Crowns at Botallack', 10x13in, oil on board
'Zawn, Botallack', 8x10in, oil on board
I really enjoyed painting this little Zawn with Tim. The light moved round fast but we couldn't resist it after being revived by a brew from Tim's Kelly kettle!
Tim lights the Kelly kettle which serves us well, accompanied by some much needed chocolate biscuits to boost our energy levels. At Levant there is another Zawn (Trewellard) which we figured would look good against the light in the late afternoon sun. I decided to give it a go and was pleased with the end result:
'Trewellard Zawn', Levant 10x13in, oil on board
I feel quite at home painting by the sea. Here's a slightly dodgy little clip of the scene as I was wrapping things up.
A couple more action shots from the end of the trip.
This shot of Roy made me laugh as it looks like he's using a pink cocktail umbrella as a sun shade :)
Tim, is that umbrella actually doing anything?

The sun sets on another great trip but hopefully it won't be too long before the next one.
