Took a morning out to go to Hayle to get some subject matter. My legs are much better for walking although I really couldn`t go far. It was raining  cold and windy and there was just a few minutes break for me to nip out of the car take a brief video and get some shots .It was far too difficult to draw which is my usual way to get information..

Since I had my relapse a week ago and have been able to get better with the drugs they give me I have been working on a number of new paintings. I suppose being ill does wake you up a bit. Although I wasn`t able to paint for a few days. I still gotta do something. Cant just rest. Thats stupid..

Any way the time spent thinking about how to approach the work and what needs to be done.is also valuable. As I say these are works in progress. Its surprizing what can happen. The top painting of the Blossom was my first attemt and is coming along rather nicely layering the flowers with underpainting. 
The bottom one is very grey and white which is what I want for this. Very simple ,honest. palms? grass? Soon.........................

Well it must be good that I can see so many faults to work on. That means I am living with these longer and making them better images. I am pleased to have toned the reds down and there is good progression here

This is the route I take from my house in Penzance across the top road that few tourists go on to get to St Ives..
