Hengistbury Head

Stunning weather last weekend led me to Bournemouth and a stroll along the coast to Hengistbury Head. Unfortunately nature conspired against me on my only painting day, leaving me to produce quick sketches instead. When I painted 2 subjects the next day from my sketches I felt far less reliant on what I could actually see. I felt much more freedom. Hopefully I'll get round to doing something with those wonderful little beach huts.

This is such beautiful work, I love the hut compositions and the bristly, windswept bush.

I'm in awe of your small travel paintings as well, such attractive shapes and colour. Awesome sketchbook.
