The Rock Point pub, Lyme Regis 2013. Watercolour & pencil. Very heavy handed & viewed from quite an impossible angle I realise now – unless I was in the surf!

BAY 1 (detail) 2013. This is from a larger piece (the first, I think) on arriving back in Lyme Regis, summer 2013. My friend, Nick B, presented me with a half palette of Winsor & Newton watercolours before I left south London that summer: a great gift! There was (& perhaps still is) a wonderful artists’ suppliers shop on Silver Street in Lyme & I treated myself to a rather large piece of heavy Fabriano paper & set to work! There is something surreal or alien discovered still here. I worked without any painterly knowledge & just experimented. I can see now that I enjoyed the immediacy of quite loose work & was unafraid to use various methods (scraping away at the surf with a card edge or some such?). I am very fond of this piece. It seems to capture something of the magic of new adventures.
