Evening Sky, Mouth of the Helford.

Evening Sky, Mouth of the Helford
Watercolour.
40 cm x 50 cm or 16 inches x 20 inches.

Just off the mouth of the Helford River a big cloudscape hides the sun but allows the magnificent display of sparkling light to play accross the water. The cooling air brings the perfume of honeysuckle and hot earth from the land out to the sea.
I am reading "Frenchman's Creek " by Daphne du Maurier, hugely romantic and set in this area, thoroughly enjoying the descriptions of places that I know so well.

Have been enjoying your vacation thru your watercolors. The sky and sea pictures are spectacular. I like them better than your oils. They are so fresh and immediate.
