update on the postcard exchange, Pendeen lighthouse, Cornwall, watercolour and mixed media sketch
Pendeen Lighthouse, watercolour and mixed media on fairly rough paper, whole image, about 9 inches across as I remember
This postcard was the most recent one I did for the exchange, sent to Cathy, it will be published on our group blog today so I can now show it to you. I was very relieved when it arrived safely as one, from another member of the group to her, is lost somewhere in the sorting office, so disappointing. I put it in a very dull brown envelope with no decoration to make it appear boring to any would-be-thieves.
The sea in the dip, where the water is shallower really is that beautiful pthalo green/viridian - impossible to describe without those colours in your palette.
Just a short distance along the coast are The Crowns at Botallack - old mine engine houses perched precariously on the edge of the cliffs, where I have also sketched.
