Only in Falmouth... Continued.... Moleskin sketches..

This young man took my eye, with his dreads tucked up under his enormous hat..
As I got my eye in, his hat slipped once again hiding his sparkly eyes.. 
The man on the right is watching me whilst I'm, watching him..
 I couldn't resist this lady with her down turned mouth.. 
Everyone else was smiling. I don't think she was having a good time..
 
 Then there was the dancers.. They kept moving.. Much more practice needed..

Only in Falmouth..

Dancing
 Drumming
 A pirate for good measure... Of course..
 
And a Fair Trade tall ship
What an amazing afternoon we had..

The flag is finished

Painted for a special friend of mine as a moving on gift..
(unceremoniously stuck to the door with blue tack so that I could photograph it for this blog)
 This was a very special piece made for a very special person with layer upon layer of meaning painted into and onto the canvas.. Significant only to it's new keeper..
At the last minute I decided to add a little poem, if you can call it that.. It will help to explain the flag to future generations of the family. Or may be not!
 
On reflection.. Perhaps I should have painted my full name..

Sketchbook..

Latest drawings, Lanyon Quoit, yesterday on a windy road side... 
No complaints the sun was shining..
These were done the other day when I visited St Michaels Mount.
I was fascinated by this gentle old man listening to the world going by..
