This is the "twin" of the St Ives painting which I posted at the start of my blog. Again it was done for my wife and I had the countless hours these things take to hand because I was off work with an injury at the time. I claim absolutely no credit for the style and would like to acknowledge Polly Gardiner as a major influence. I had so much fun doing this, I found it so liberating being able to disregard perspective rules and realism, as well as playing with pretty colours. It also transported me back to happy holiday times and sunshine. Watercolour on Langton 140lb NOT.
