The Cornish countryside is really special. The way the shapes of fields and hillside fit together is mesmerizing and I wish I could stay here and learn how to paint them. Today I sketched Marazion and its surrounding hills from the slope of St. Michael’s Mount, just across the bay.
We spent an afternoon at the Lost Gardens of Heligan a few days ago. The gardens are lush and the story of the gardens is heartwarming and encouraging. I am going to post a sketch from there, perhaps tonight, but notice that a sketch from the garden is somehow posted on some versions of this post. So if you are seeing a sketch of an odd blue structure, that is from the Lost Gardens and not Marazion!
