A day to draw.

Jackie and I took the bus to St Just in Roseland and walked down the Fal estuary to St Mawes, stopping to draw on a National Trust beach and on  National Trust hillside.  Perhaps an hour drawing and applying watercolour – not entirely certain that the marks made were worth the time spent, but I enjoyed the process.

Spent a little time at St Mawes castle (ate lunch and looked at the water) before joining Pam and Steve in the Victory for Betty Stogs, then the 3.30pm bus back to Gerrans.

Some lovely decorated stucco in quoins, horizontal moulding and pilaster.  Seems to draw on Celtic cross designs.

After tea I set out to look down on Portscatho from the hill to the south and make one more coloured drawing – the village from above, severely simplified.  Then into the Plume of Feathers for a Proper Job, perhaps two, before returning for Jackie’s vegetable curries and garlic nans.
