West Bay in all its glory

In this good weather West Bay has glowed! I dashed down yesterday for an hour at the end of the day to sit on West Beach and daub watercolours in sketchbooks in a vain attempt to understand how light changes the colours in the sea and catch the drama of low sun on the rocks.  I am really pleased I made the effort.  I wasn’t aiming for a finished picture (and I forgot how long it can take for paint to dry in the cold) but I learned a little more about control and accident with watercolours and enjoyed myself immensely. I ended up with cold buttocks and blotted sketchbooks but it was worthwhile.

Today, Sally and I went for a little stroll in the sunshine and met up with a friend and her dog. I couldn’t ask for more wonderful surroundings to wander and chat and sit and do nothing. Made all the sweeter following all the inclement weather we have had this year.
