Snow on Caradon Hill
Looking through some work I painted back in 2007 after a rare snowfall in our county of Cornwall.

Pre christian and christian pilgrims travelled many miles to gather in peaceful wooded valley near town of Liskeard in Cornwall, England. With the reformation a small chapel called 'Ladye Park' was destroyed and its followers fled. Further reading and drawings can be seen at

Sunset Over Padstow
Working in my studio shed with sketches of colour but decided to keep the contrast high and lower the waterline.

From Rock to Padstow
Can't help myself wanting to push the deep prussion blue that bit darker and increase the drama.

Coastline near Downderry in Cornwall
Really enjoyed working with prussian blue oil colour today to offer those deep brooding clouds that bit more drama to the cornish coastline near Downderry.

Sunset Over Bodmin Moor
I enjoyed working on the strong contrast between the cool blue and the deep red of the foreground. I didn't want to include any detail on the land as it would have possibly distracted my own enjoyment of the colour.

While in Cornwall in 1656 Fox and a friend were arrested and taken to a magistrate who imprisoned them in Launceston Jail for having long hair. They were in jail for nine weeks before being escorted to trial by a body of soldiers. The charges against them were not proved but they were fined for not taking their hats off in court and were sent back to Launceston Prison until they paid their fine; something Fox was not inclined to do as it was unjust. They were then thrown into ‘Doomsdale.’ Fox describes it well in his Journal. ‘A nasty, stinking place, where they used to put murderers after they were condemned. The place was so noisome that it was observed few that went in did ever come out again in health. There was no house of office in it; and the excrement of the prisoners that from time to time had been put there had not been carried out (as we were told) for many years. So that it was all like mire, and in some places to the tops of the shoes in water and urine; and he would not let us cleanse it, nor suffer us to have beds or straw to lie on.
