You can hear the sea through the mist

This image comes from a walk along the coast path which winds across the two counties of Devon and Cornwall near Welcome Bay. The oil paint is applied in glazes with added bees wax to depict the soft sea mist.

Campions & the worn stone stile

There are so many stiles to be found like this one across Devon and Cornwall built into the high hedges and banks. It adds a sense of antiquity and magic to the walk as if walking into and within the world of past generations.
