Makeshift Easel




I was painting on a beach on the east side of Tresco this afternoon, at Blockhouse Point.

The light was dramatic.

I was pleased to find a large piece of driftwood on the beach, which I dragged into position where I wanted to work. I dug away the sand on one side of it, piling it across to ensure I had a good height to lean the canvas on.

So close to the waves lapping in. Did you have to move a lot with the tide? You must get sand blown into your paints too!

Good to see you keeping busy over there.

Hi Chris,
I Was careful to note that the tide was on the way out.
I was aware of its pattern from being on the beach on the days before - so i was confident that i wouldn't get caught out.

The finished paintings are up on my website
