I went back to Cadgwith today to get one last paint in before I start on some oils. I`ve been trying to work out how I want to paint them. I nearly stayed a bit longer but was eager to get cracking so came back at lunchtime. I had a look around to see if there was anywhere as good to paint but I think the view I had was the best. Its a very nice little place with a pub and a cafe and restaurant and a few basic shops and a real working feel to the place. I think the people who live there are very lucky.

So I have come home and done an oil . I have to say I prefer the Gouache.But it`s ok. They will get better.

Mullion Oil on Canvas

Mullion. What a place! I seem to, however, constantly struggle with not really knowing what I am doing. You would think by now I would know but when I went in the studio this morning I was full of trepidation. I had two massive canvases ready and no idea how to fill them and even when I got started I had to push myself. Like pushing myself over a cliff. I am such a coward sometimes. But the push it seems was worth it in the end.

I can't keep on doing these dark ones. It's coming along this one but I think I had better lighten up a little Don`t you? Self-indulgent possibly? 
You have to experiment. Otherwise you just keep on repeating your self.

Anyway, I have now got my 30x40inch canvases from the Courier and I will prepare for some light biggies.

Managed to get a bit more done on this. For me it is a bit pale and bland but my wife Lorraine likes it so I will finish it.
