At the end of the summer I took my paints and headed to Port Isaac to paint the old school building. From there I went down the hill and sat on the beach and had a quiet half hour doing a water colour sketch.

Having done the sketch I will be using it back in my studio as the basis of a oil painting.

Port Isaac boasts some beautiful views not only from the beach but also from the cliffs.  The day we went was particularly lovely with just a few visitors enjoying the Cornish sunshine.

Port Isaac is better known to the viewers of the ITV series ‘Doc Martin’ as Port Wenn. A new series of this popular show is due to start filming soon.
