I am blessed in that I live in a very beautiful part of England. Well I think so. Here in the North West, we have Morecambe Bay, The Lake District, the Trough of Bowland, Silverdale AONB and, er, The Fylde Coast. Each place has its own character and endlessly inspires me. Even Blackpool seafront is gorgeous if seen in the right light.
This week however my girlfriend and I went out to Sunderland Point, on the Lune Estury. It's a splendid place, accessible by a causeway at low tide. The air is chill and the skys are BIG. I started a few paintings from photos I took. I intend to take my easel out and paint in situ soon, I mean, who's afraid of the cold, wind and rain when there's paintings to be done?
Oh yes, and there's a jar of plums for good measure...
