Choughs and Wild Coast

Thrilled to see Choughs in the wild today - for the first time ever - can't describe what the realisation of what was before my eyes felt like! Also got to see a 'mumuration' of starlings - no pics unfortunately. A fairly dark and cloudy November day Love this wild coast though Click to enlarge.  Copyright Lesley Ninnes.

Porthmeor and Porthgwidden inspired paintings

Unfortunately forgot to photograph the paintings below before taking to the framers - so please excuse the picture quality, as the frames are glazed!  Both paintings measure 29 x 20 cm and are float mounted in white wood frames measuring 56 x 46 cm. 'Porthgwidden Impression' oil on board. In this painting I'm imagining myself on Porthgwidden Beach, looking across St Ives Bay to Godrevy Lighthouse - the rock on the right is 'Merryn'.   SOLD 'Porthmeor - Open Space' oil on board.   SOLD This, I hope, captures the clarity often seen at Porthmeor and the way clouds are reflected in the slick of water ahead of the waves. They're not exhibited anywhere at the moment, but will probably end up at Art Space Gallery before long!  Click to enlarge.  Copyright Lesley Ninnes.

November seascapes

Sun and showers for the last few days, so pretty good so far  for the month of November.  Great cloud formations too. Six original seascapes in oil on board to show today. The first is my favourite and, believe it or not, there's quite a lot of 'flesh tint' mixed in with the colours used! 'Dark Sky, Pale Sea' 13.5 x 13.5 cm.  SOLD 'Brisk Day, Northerly' 13.5 x 13.5 cm.   SOLD 'End of Another Winter Day' 13.5 x 13.5 cm.   SOLD 'Calm Sea, Soft Sky' 13.5 x 13.5 cm.   SOLD 'Bright Sea View' 13.5 x 13.5 cm.
