South West

We’ve just spent a few days in the South West. Our initial reason for going was to see a couple of friends who recently moved to Plymouth from Manchester but as it is such a long drive to get there we decided to meet other friends who live down that way.

We were impressed with Plymouth and found a very interesting new gallery there called The Box. We also visited an old art college friend of mine who’s a very successful potter. She lives near Bodmin and has work in the Eden Project so we went there with her and her husband. I’ve been wanting to go for years and wasn’t disappointed. Added to this we called in at Graham’s nephew and family in Walsall en route, ┬ávisited an old school friend of mine in Pill near Bristol and ended the trip staying with another friend in Bristol itself.

It was great to get away and have a complete change of scene and we had glorious weather. I didn’t do much drawing but did manage to get down to one of the harbours in Plymouth and did a very quick sketch of the boats.
