St Ives Roofs

We visited in September, for the 3rd time, and cliche or not, I have fallen in love with the place. Art, of all standards and interpretations, is never far away, and I found that incredibly inspiring and uplifting. I took a fair few photos and thought a lot about landscapes and beauty whilst I was there.

I did this little painted sketch on my return, again a departure from any previous styles of work – much freer and less concerned about the end result. My main focus was on the jumbled mass of roofs when seen from above, and the preponderance of orangey yellow lichen that contrasts so exuberantly against the grey slates.
