Cliff top paintings in Cornwall

danger old mine workingsWho could resist a sign like that?  Earlier this year I spent some time in Cornwall painting from the cliff tops. Although the days were sunny there was often a strong wind blowing across the cliffs from the Atlantic Ocean. I was using my Open Box M palette/panel holder on a Velbon tripod to keep my boards steady. Here are some photos from the trip.
