Mixed weather

Our recent visit to Cornwall saw sunny days, but also brought horrendous gales too, in the form of Storm Brendan.   A slight concern as we were staying in this Grade2 listed building in Penzance...


With that Huge tree next to it...


However, storm and trees apart, we had a good stay 
Plus I got to do some plein air painting (as per previous blogpost)

During one day of storms, we did some Wave watching, and nearly got blown off our feet





You see!
That’s St. Michael’s Mount out there in the spray and mist. 
 No plein air painting in that, but I did some quick sketches for reference later.
This small painting on art panel was done alla prima.  I hope it conveys a sense of the atmosphere.






Another blogpost soon, with contrasting weather we enjoyed during our stay in Cornwall.

You've captured the choppy sea perfectly! Having that tree outside your cottage must have been a worry in the storm. Thankfully the bad weather only lasted a few days and I'm glad you enjoyed the remainder of your holiday.

It was quite rough n the video. The tree sure dwarfed that cottage.

Thanks Robin, Eileen and Marie.....Yes, that tree was a slight concern, especially the next day when we found pieces of branches from it on the ground!

Those waves are impressive! Hope you had some sunny days as well!
