Holiday Painting

We're off to Cornwall tomorrow for a very brief stay at my Dad's house while he's off in Germany. The original plan was to look after his three mangy dogs but they're going into kennels now, so it looks like we'll have plenty of time to get out and about.

For some reason, my eldest son is into Merlin, the BBC series on Saturday nights, so we're planning to go to Tintagel if the weather isn't too bad, as well as a few other places linked to the Arthurian legend. There's a place called Dozmary Pool not far away in which Arthur is supposed to have found Excaliber, so that's on the list as well as Lydford Gorge, which is very atmospeheric in a Celtic sort of way.

Anyway, I'm taking something to paint with me and hope to get at least a bit of brushwork in over the next few days. As I've been pretty useless at getting anything done recently due to overload at work, it's a good excuse to tackle the pirate gun crew for a start.

I have two pirate games lined up for November, along with the Bag The Hun try out, so I need to get the guncrew sorted as a matter of urgency, otherwise my pirate ship will be a bit if a sitting duck. I'll take something else as well, just for good measure, but haven't decided what yet.


  1. My wife and I come from Newquay, so I know this coast well.

  2. Looks an place awesome to visit even the name alone: Tintagel!
