I am beginning to realise, the Cornwall countryside is often not visible from the road, a result of the ubiquitous ‘hedgerow’ …

Fortunately, there are weird trees at intervals …

and places where the trees make tunnels of the road …

Best View:  Church in Talland …  I tried using pen with the watercolour …  I love the big cloud … but the gravestones a bit thin and wavy …

and the waves at Talland Bay … these waves have some frothiness compared to my painting of the beach at Millendreath (see post for August 7, 2013) …

    • Hi. I am certainly improving health-wise … I’m still trying to identify those roadside weeds! Jane

  2. Hi Jane, Having driven down those narrow roads, I definitely think it’s preferable to be ‘virtually’ cycling!
    Your watercolours are gorgeous! Stephanie.

    • Hi Stephanie. Even in virtual mode, I drive on the wrong side too often! Fortunately my ‘bike’ can squeeze by almost anywhere! Jane

  3. I quite like the contrast of the dark pen in your painting of the church. The waves at Talland Bay is just lovely, I can picture those cliffs vividly. You’re right about the hedgerows – Cornwall is full of them!
