harbour abstracts…

A day too wet for sketching on a recent holiday in Cornwall, had me hunting for ‘found abstracts’ with my camera around Mousehole harbour.

I love the way decades, possibly centuries, of Atlantic storms have weathered the painted doors and windows; have rusted locks, handles, harbour mechanisms etc. of this small traditional fishing village on the Cornish coastline.

So here is a selection of the images … hopefully they will inspire my future paintings with their colour combinations, line and texture.
