A Saturday in January
Just got in from "road testing" my new prochade box. I did the coast path from Sennen to Mill Bay and back, about 5 miles in total with lots of painting stops to thoroughly test the kit.
This is the first sketch, it was a very cold day but absolutely beautiful, clear sky and blue sea. The cliffs round Lands End are high and very rocky with dramatic views of the sea below. I could spend days painting there.
The prochade box was ordered on Wednesday and arrived on Thursday and I am most impressed with it. It looks great and holds just the right amount of kit. I have my old rucksack with another little kit for watercolours, gloves and waterproof trousers, flask etc. All in all a great way to spend a Saturday in January, well it beats shopping!
