It's been a beautiful day down here in St Ives today so we decided to go for a walk along the coastal path to Carbis Bay...along the way we took a slight detour to Porthminster Point. So glad that we went down that way! There is a pebble beach but the access was a little tricky (may be better when the tide is out?) we had spotted the fantastic green colours on the rock so wanted to get a better look. This involved a rather undignified scramble down the rocks for me (also too 2 attempts because I was chicken!) but wow it was worth it....There must be a copper seam running through the rocks causing the amazing colouration. As you can see LOTS of photos were taken. I've printed a few of them out for inspiration for some verdigris panels - not sure I can achieve the vivid greens seen here though?
Last night I had a little go on the sewing machine(I'm still a real novice!) but the colours I used are very appropriate for today's theme!
