Week 2: Westward Ho! to Padstow 'On the Path' Day 14
Word of the day - Sand
Port Isaac to Padstow
- 11 miles
- 2,800ft of ascent
Away by 0915 and stopped just before Kellan Point to sketch. Both feeling very fit today, no aches and pains. It makes thinking about the art much easier when your body is not complaining.
Started to take colour notes and think in terms of shapes, patterns and mark which will lead to more abstracted images in the studio. Amazing slate rock strata with purple and turquoise stripes on the beach at Polzeath. I haven't got the right blues and greens with me, actually it would be easier if I could bring the whole studio along!
Stopped for Mr Surfy's pancakes in New Polzeath. Then had a pleasant walk along the beach from Daymer Bay to Rock, before travelling home by ferry, bus, train and foot.
