One of the best towns you will ever come across


About the town

St Ives takes a lot of stick from the locals but there’s no getting away from the fact that it’s just mind-blowingly an eye-opener. If the light doesn’t get you the views will. Parking is impossible but I know a few tricks. The painting is great as there are just so many views and angles to work with. No wonder it has a reputation as an artist's destination. I would avoid the Tate, not my cuppa tea, but I am old fashioned and the young would love it. There are good little family galleries around. Fish and Chips are brilliant especially down by the Sloop Inn

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
