Thinking back to Spring

Last Spring I wanted to go down to Lamorna and find the studios of a group of artists who painted in and around Newlyn.Some of them had studios at Lamorna Cove which is such an enchanted place.
 A stream rushes down to the sea through a rocky valley that in Spring is full of wild flowers. There is an old Pub called The Wink where the artists met and had  a great time together.The pasties are very good there to this day.
This colony produced some remarkable and beautiful pictures,they painted outside in all weathers and caught the light and the ambiance of the area.They also used local people as models and in another post I would like to share some of their work.
But for now I will just remember that lovely  early spring day when the daffodils were blooming and there was still a nip in the air and the only sound the  was of water rushing  over boulders down through the woody valley and out into the sea.


  1. It all sounds so delightful. LOVE your photos in the woods!
