Back To Tresco





I haven't had the best of summers. In got ill in May, and ended up on a lengthy course of chemotherapy.

With that behind me, here are my latest paintings. I sat outside on the beach at New Grimsby on Tresco in the Isles of Scilly – one of my favourite places in the world – and painted these on canvases roughly 3' wide.

It wasn't freezing cold, but the wind was quite strong. It was exhilarating to be in such a beautiful and inspiring place, and to be painting in situ.

Hi Harriet, Just found these latest Tresco paintings - they are so fresh and full of light. Sorry I missed you when you were here. New York sketch from today is such a contrast, and just as lovely. Take care, Anna x
