Porthleven harbourside shadows

Porthleven harbourside shadows

Porthleven, Cornwall. Watercolour, 15" x 11"

Most of my previous paintings of Porthleven in Cornwall have been of the harbour.  Mainly at low tide, a scene of boats and the backdrop of the town beyond the harbour wall is quite attractive and I could paint many variations.  So here is a more unusual view down one of the roads along the side of the harbour and some horizontal shadows coming across the scene.

Painted on Saunders Waterford, Cold Press, 300 gms.

Newquay Harbour Cliffs

Newquay, UK, Watercolour, 15" x 11"

The cliffs on the western end of the harbour and the tide is in.  A bit of cobalt turquoise works wonders for reflections.

Cornwall - Ian Wilmot

My late brother, Ian Wilmot, was a very good photographer.  I was looking through his archives the other day from his travels, and quite a few of his black and white photos (that was his specialty for mood and atmosphere) I thought could be paintable.  Now I have no idea where this location is, but I believe it's in Cornwall.  Painting from a black and white photo is great for helping you and suggesting values, but you're on your own with the colours!

Cheers Ian, wherever you are!  RIP.
