Here are a few photos of the gorgeous Cornish coast and a few quick Plein air sketches and watercolour studies.
I read a really interesting book during the train journey and on the beach, 'The Salt Path' by Raynor Winn. It was recommended by Kate from the Foldline and it is set all around the South West coast which felt rather apt as I was passing through many on the train and wanted to absorb the sights and sounds of this coastline through somebody else's eyes too. I would highly recommend the book as a break from the usual rom-com light summer read!
I also visited fellow Yorkshire lass, Barbara Hepworth's sculpture garden and studio which is somewhere I have wanted to visit for sooooooo long! It did not disappoint and my tip to you, if you are visiting during the peak holiday season, is to go either as soon as it opens (10am) or in the last hour of the day (4-5pm). I did this both times and pretty much had the whole garden to myself (and my friend Charlotte) on both occasions.
