Plein air, oil on board apprx. 24 x 15cm
A blustery November morning down at Porth Nanven. A steady southwesterly force 5 to 6 meant I had to stabilize my gear with some rocks ( which didn’t help with the wind buffeting the panel I was painting on! ) but that was preferable and easier to deal with than conditions where a sudden heavy gust can easily drive your gear and painting face down in the dirt or straight into the ocean before you have time to react. In windy conditions even a small panel can act as a very efficient sail. When I attempt some larger paintings on site, guy ropes and a couple of tent pegs will come in handy whenever the wind is up.
