A rare visitor

Anyone know what this creature is; or what it turns into?

I noticed it ‘galloping’ past my studio recently…IMG_1509

I hastened it on its way.

Autumn, Entree de Mere

October 5th, 2017
Literal leap into the unknown, I particularly wanted to paint a morning mist; I almost missed it.

‘Into autumn’, mellow season of mists, harvests from vines, measuring 50 x 40 cms (20” x 16”), oils, available, £900.

Saint Brice, Entre deux Mers

Saint-Brice, Entre deux Mers

I painted this scene of Saint-Brice on location as it happened, what I’m referring to is mentioned on my web site page http://artfrickers.com/sample-page/entre-deux-mers/saint-brice/
The village claims to be at the heart of Entre Deux Mers, (the land between two seas) near Bordeaux.
For sure Saint-Brice is home to a number of distinguished Château producing refined, amicable wines.

Studio space

The Brittany studio of a determined painter, works well in fine weather… spacious, high ceiling

My studio... 27.09.17 IMG_1481
You may notice, this studio is quite climate change sensitive, could be drafty, and cold, a problem come the equinoxial gales and winter…

A very unusual, a pair of studies made on location at St Mary Port, Isle of Scillies.

St Mary’s (1), detail 1

 

These two fine paintings, a blast from my past, were painted on location on successive days, while awaiting at the request of BBC Radio Cornwall staff,  the arrival of Virgin Atlantic Challenge II.

Although I like to think I’ve learnt a few more tricks, studied much and paint more consistently since those far off day, is remains I hope you will agree, a great pleasure to see this pair again and again.

Two interesting examples of an emerging talent, who’d have thought it?

This fine pair found a new home in the collection of M. & Mme Linquette, at Brest where I was able recently to enjoy them again and re photograph the pair.

Kynance Cove

August 9th, 2017

Kynanace Cove, Mermaid’s Pool, a Cornish secret, few people, mostly locals know of it’s existance.

Mermaid's Pool

Mermaid’s Pool

In reply to a friend via facebook, I wrote “I still have it (the painting) here.

If you ever get the chance, summer or winter, do visit Kynance Cove. Magnificent, awesome in a winter gale, in summer with a north to easterly wind, sheltered, very safe. Kids like to jump off the small green granite cliffs into the pool.

Amazingly clean clear water a white sand bottom. On one occassion I duck dived in the pool and swam out into the bay via a submerged tunnel, through an undersea garden populated by numerous small fish into a bay strewn with rocks, plants on white sand; quite unforgettable“.

Nearby on the cliff in the valley is a cafe that used to be a fisherman’s cottage.

Last time I was there with my children the staff served excellet Cornish cream teas to tables on the lawn, good Cornish ice creams too.

There was only one cottage and no cars.

It was a mile to walk down to the cove, well worth the ramble.

A beautiful day with my friends Marie Therese and Joel, some shopping in Brest, an amazing variarty of shops in and around Brest, then a drive out onto the Finesterre peninsular to the picturesque port of Le Conquet, more of that later…

Today’s main task, drive back to Thehillac
