Yours truly painting at Botollack from the National Trust Images website
When I was down in Cornwall painting last year, lots of people would stop to watch and chat, while a few took photos of me as I worked. Usually, I don’t hear from the people again and just take the contact as a pleasant part and parcel of painting En Plein Air. However, this week I received an email by a nice Slovakian lady, Natalia Burianova, who I met whilst I was painting on the side of the cliffs at Botollack. It turns out that she’s a volunteer park ranger for Cornwall National Trust and she forwarded her pictures of me to the Trust for their Images website. Natalia emailed me to let me know that these images of me have been used in the National Trust Cornwall 2017 booklet which is available at National Trust Information Centres! I’m not mentioned by name but I’m delighted that my image was used as I support the work of the Trust in protecting the natural environment.

This is the painting that I completed during that visit when I met Natalia and it’s for sale at £450. See website for further details and to purchase.
