180th entry...raining or what!!!!

I thought that I would give you a taste of my Cornwall holiday, so I took a page of 4 sketches from my 365 sketches for 2012 that I download on Twitter every day!!! I scanned the page, used  watercolour and charcoal
and printed them onto card for my family; to say thank you for a magic holiday!
Here it is...
Cornwall with my family - 2012
Starting top left with our walk to Mevagissey; top right a pint or two at The Ship; bottom left is the opening of our secret bunny presents - all home made - fabulous - do try it!! Bottom right is our walk back from Charlestown and did we get wet!!!!
Back to the routine of life now and very busy!!!!

About Me

My photo
Art has always been an integral part of my life. At the age of 50 I was able to complete a long awaited foundation course and HNC/HND. From this experience I have developed my love of pastel and watercolour. Rubens has always inspired me with his fluidity of movement; Degas and Lautrec I admire with their rough marks and blends of colour,their freshness of approach. I feel I have been given a talent for a reason and gradually the purpose shall unfold... sarah.orchard54@hotmail.co.uk Note: Images are Copyright Sarah Orchard © 2009
