Small.Circular and Tranquil


About the town

Mousehole is a funny old place. It’s typically Cornish and very circular. It is nearly always quiet and there are a few great spots to paint. Down on the beach is a small gentle and lapping tide and up on the Quayside with all the houses meandering up the steep hill there are unexpected cafes and places of interest. It is much busier in the summer when the second homeowners take up residence but never too busy for comfort. It is a favourite place for artists which you will often see on the seafront beach.

Oil painting is a slow process because you have to wait and be patient when adding layers it is however worth the wait as the finished results are worth it.


Gouache is bright and strong and is great for working out doors for fresh immediate results and is easy to transport and work with and that's why I just I love it


I like to take acrylic painting out with me when I am plain air painting but only occasionally as I now paint mainly in oil. I love acrylic and I also love oil
