This week I returned to the inspiration of the bathing pool at Priest Cove, Cape Cornwall (see the post on my Brison Veor residency from earlier this year).
To start with I’ve been working on small mixed-media pieces on paper including the two shown here, but this time with a wet-in-wet acrylic ink base. I wanted to evoke the feeling and sound of the tide approaching over the rocks and of the crashing waves inundating the pool, which is set into the rocks.
Today however, I decided to be braver and go bigger. I thought you might like to see a short video of me starting the first large piece.
