Anyone who follows my work already knows that I have a particular fascination with the shore-line, rugged rocks, the energy of the waves, and that it is a big inspiration in my work. More details can be found here in an earlier blog.
Last month I spent an incredible sun filled (kid-free) weekend celebrating a special birthday with my partner near Mawgan Porth, in Cornwall. It is so easy to see why so many people and artists fall in love with this special place.
Considering it was early March we were so spoilt with the weather with such beautiful blue skies. We enjoyed many coastal walks and soaked up stunning views, breathing in the fresh salty air.
It was great to be able to photograph my work in-situ on the Mawgan Porth beach.
I wanted to keep all those memories together to refer back to as a future source of inspiration. Part of our walk was to Bedruthan Steps, with its stunning sea stacks and beautiful rock formations. The National Trust has re-built the steps down to the beach, which is so worth an explore.
And after our walk we were able to take a breather at the National Trust café, housed in one of the original tin mining buildings. I just love the bright blue tones in this building.
I love revisiting all the photos which capture perfect little details from the weekend.
I will leave you with the view that greeted us upon our arrival - so breathtaking...
Ohh, just one final post-script... I found out yesterday that my porcelain 'sea-foam' bowl, pictured on the beach above, has been selected by the RBSA to be included in their Prize exhibition, taking place on the 7 May-13 June, which I feel very honoured about.
Hope you liked my pictures and have a great weekend.
