My first pastel pictures made at Mullion Cove Cornwall

These are some of the pictures I produced at my 'Taster' session whilst on holiday near Mullion Cove Cornwall.

They are done in Water Soluble Wax Pastels and are my first attempt in this particular medium.

The first is called 'On Moonlight Bay' because of the tranquil feeling of the sea, the sand and the moon shining on the water from behind a dark broody cloud.

The second is 'Tree in the early morning sunrise' with a black shadowy tree against the distant rising sun.

Next is Remembrance ' At the going down of the sun, and in the morning, we will remember them' a family of shadowy figures stand to attention against the evening sunset, a blend of Poppy Red, White and Green.

And lastly 'Moody hues' a seascape in different hues trying out different colours and blending.

Your thoughts on my efforts would be much appreciated.

If you are ever at Mullion Cove on the Lizard Peninsular in Cornwall, why not pop in to 'Mullion Meadows' and see Anthony in his Gallery and maybe try his 'taster' sessions.

Also see Chocolate being made and sculpted into all sorts of forms.

Honey Cosmetics for a variety of natural cosmetics made using natural ingredients and Cornish honey.

There's a cafe.

And Cornish Made with hand made jewelry, hand knitted baby clothes and cardigans, cards, sun catchers and a mirriad of other things.

Also a really nice Scrapbooking and Card making shop at the rear of the complex near the car park.

It really is worth visiting..

A new slant on playing cat and mouse LOL

I have recently returned form two weeks away in my caravan on the Lizard Peninsular Cornwall.. although it's only just over an hours drive away the scenery is so different from this end of Cornwall, I find it so relaxing and peaceful.

But one day late morning I was looking across to an unoccupied pitch to see this rather wonderful sight. The site cat and a local Pheasant eyeballing each other . The cat made no attempt to chase the Pheasent and the Pheasent in turn was obviously at home with the cat being so close.

I thought it made a wonderful picture to share with you all.

If you have any captions you could leave for this picture please feel free to do so....
