Sunset Sennen Cove mixed media

I'm taking part in (and organising heaven help me!) a sketchbook exchange with an art group I belong to. 20 people are taking part in 2 groups of 10 over 10 months. Each sets a theme for, and starts off a book that ultimately comes back to them, to keep, with work by all of their group. Just hoping everyone keeps up! It can really spoil things if they don't.

My theme is Places that are special to you - place/room/whatever

Of course mine is of Cornwall



watercolour, gouache, coloured pencil and charcoal pencil on sanded paper. Page size for everyone is 21cm square.

The book builds as it travels, each adding their page in a concertina fashion. The cover goes on when it's finished and comes back to me. There are some really good people taking part so looking forward to the finished thing

What a great idea! Love this one. The bluegreens in the sky and water are so harmonious with the red sun. Your waves are light and lively. I can see this is a favorite place.

I really enjoy your mixed media work. Everything in this one has come together very well to my taste. Gary

Vivien, wonderful. I'm a big fan of mixed media. You are so adept at it.
This is lovely.

We are big doc Martin fans here. ( Cornwall).
