St Michael's Mount
2007

Watercolour on Arches paper.

Done in the space of a few hours one very hot day, during a family holiday in Cornwall, this painting is a favourite of mine.

I was starting to discover the possibilities of Arches paper and had also started to ‘loosen up a bit» as the realisation dawned that I would never get close to emulating the pure, controlled technique of David Curtis, a masterful modern day exponent.
