Day 3 Cabin residency
Finished my first painting of the residency! Warmer weather speeded up the drying process and I’m starting to feel home making painting a pleasure. This finished painting is created using Cotman watercolours, natural water from the waterfall on the beach and some “Bideford Black” pigment from the nearby cliffs making a very unique and special artwork. I’ve also been painting another watercolour at the same time but it’s top secret at present for an upcoming exhibition so I’ll be sharing it at a later date. Met some people who actually knew one of the artists who lived here and have some of their original paintings, “yours are not dissimilar” was a comment he made, praise indeed! Looking forward to whatever tomorrow inspires me to paint.
