More artwork!

My Etsy shop has been updated with some additional photos and artwork. This first is an A4 giclee print, 'Sunrise' taken from a watercolour/gouache diptych.

This print is entitled 'Porthmeor Rocks'.

'Let's Dance'!


The next is an original painted on primed card and is called 'Gannet Seas', because we often see Gannets diving here in such conditions.

This too is an original on primed card - 'Seascape & Headland' - I'm not always so imaginative when it comes to titles!

I forgot to include close ups of 'St Ives Harbour & Godrevy' in the previous post, so here they are (below) - makes it easier to see brushstrokes, texture and the grain of the wooden support.


  1. Wow I really love those last two. Colours and textures are gorgeous

  2. Those are amazing!! I really need to get out my paints - maybe tomorrow.

  3. as usual they are all beautiful but love, love LOVE "Gannet Seas"~!!~


  4. I have said it before and I will say it again ..... You are one talented lady!

  5. Lovely pictures - really evocative!

  6. oh just soooo beautiful, you are a fabulous colourist madam!

  7. Dear All, thanks for visiting and saying so many nice things about my work. It's late now - life is so hectic at the moment - but I'll visit you all again soon (hopefully tomorrow, Tuesday at the latest, promise)x

  8. Beautiful series - I particularly like Gannet Seas. The marks are to die for and it conjures the sea perfectly.

  9. Love your use of colour. And the textures you create are amazing!

  10. You are so talented!! (I'm not jealous....I'm not jealous at all :-D)

  11. Lynne, Denise, Carol - thanks, it's great to have a connection with you and the other talented, creative individuals that people the Blogosphere! Best wishes. Lesley

  12. Beeaauutifullll work!!! Lovley lovely paintings, where is the gallery you show in in St Ives? Jane xxxx (Im not jealous either!) oh yes I am!!!

  13. I covet your rolling waves - so so much. Utterly vibrant and so full of motion. Wanties - that's what I have. Is there a treatment for the wanties?

  14. Jane and Emma, thank you, some paintings work better than others don't they? Sometimes it's all struggle and on other, rarer, occasions the artist can do no wrong! Best wishes. Lesley
    PS the gallery is Art Space, on the Wharf, close to Smeaton's Pier.

  15. I absolutely love the mood and colour in your art work, it is so wonderfully evocative. You are very talented!

  16. Kim, hello and thanks for your kind comment. Best wishes. Lesley

  17. I really like the close-ups which show the textures especially the sand and water. They could stand as works on there own.

  18. Hi Jill, and thanks. The painting's quite large, so there's a lot of brushwork that's not obvious online when viewed complete. BFN. Lesley

  19. so soft and beautiful, and so interesting to see the close-ups! Very inspiring, Andrea

  20. Hi Andrea, thank you and best wishes, Lesley

  21. yes, so beautiful.. the sea and the art is exquisite.

    happy day :)

  22. Ooops, it's happened again. Thought I'd left a comment ages ago, but this new dialog gets me every time. Love the paintings, especially the last two and the rocks at the beginning. Good luck with them and take care.

  23. Lovely work Lesley. I like the gentle colours and softness and the close up shows the textures really well. I think Seascapes and Headland is my favourite though. I wish I lived near the sea...sigh.

  24. Shelby, Sybille and Cathy thanks for the lovely, heartening comments, which are appreciated as always!

    And Sybille, I know what you mean about leaving comments, having been very wordy on other blogs only for everthing to be lost when leaving the page prematurely because I've not selected a profile, signed in, misspelt the word verification and then forgotten to check the preview!! It's so frustrating!! BFN. Lesley

  26. Hi Marilyn, thanks for following - I have tried to visit your site via the followers panel but there's no link to your blog, so haven't been able to do so. Hope you'll read this and realise that it's not because I haven't tried. Best wishes. Lesley

  27. Dear Lesley, I am not sure how I missed this wonderful wonderful post of yours. All the paintings are so very beautiful, wonderful colours and brush strokes. You must have slipped past in my blog list without me noticing

    I hope all is well with you Lesley and you are enjoying the busy summer and Festival

    Bye for now

  28. Carolyn, you say such lovely things! Thank you very much.

    All is hectic at the moment - though on an 'even keel' luckily - which explains the sporadic posting and following. Hope you're enjoying the festival too. BFN. x

  29. thankyou for visiting my blog, I love your seascape images they are very calming and relaxing to look at.

  30. Hi Faith, watching the sea is relaxing too, I find, even when it's rough. Thanks for commenting. Lesley

  31. They are peaceful looking.


  32. These are so beautiful and so evocative of home x

  33. Jayne thanks, have enjoyed keeping up with your holiday (will be taking another look at the tea towels soon) and Pipany, I always really enjoy your photographs of life on the other coast! BFN. Lesley

  34. Lovely colors of the sea - very soft and peaceful. I feel like I am there and can hear the gulls.

  35. Thanks Holly, it's lovely to receive praise from one whose drawings I so admire - love your Corgi too! Lesley
