St Ives 1

This is a view of St Ives, a family favourite holiday destination. It's not typical of the sort of work I do but my wife absolutely loves this style and wants to fill our house with it! Watercolour with accents in black ink, it is heavily influenced by local professional artists and is often sold in postcard form in the tourist shops. The main influence and inspiration though was Helen herself. There is nothing like making something for someone you love.


  1. Splendid Kev. I love this style and have done something similar in the past. It is very time consuming but worth it in the end.

    1. You are so right about the time these things take John. Hours and hours!!! One of the things I enjoyed was the unrestrained opportunity to use lots of colours in a carefree way. It has a "twin" which I did in February. I'll be posting it soon. Thanks john.
