My journey of change continued after my initial experiments (as described in part 1) with applying inks with seaweed, feathers, bamboo pens and anything to hand which could be effective. Viv and I have been doing work inspired by our visits to Cornwall for over 30 years and on a recent visit staying in Marazion we had a flat with a view looking down onto the beach. It was magic watching cormorants, oyster catchers, egrets and curlews feeding in the rock pools and the ebb and flow of the tide was totally hypnotic.
This is part of a series of paintings as seen from our flat trying to capture the ever-changing vista of water over rocks and sand plus the shifting light and atmosphere. They are part of a process which I want next to translate into working on canvas. So I predict more fun and mess ahead!
