December 16 - Cornwall

Theme today for a little creating - Cornwall.

I've had people say, they don't know what to sketch or create. So a journal prompt today: start where you are, and sketch whatever is in front of you. I've been watching a few videos of Cornwall so that was my focus for this little sketch.

The art colony of St Ives in Cornwall became as important as Paris or London in the history of modernism during a golden creative period between the 1920s and 1960s. The dramatic lives and works of eight artists, who most made this miracle possible, from Kit Wood and Alfred Wallis to Barbara Hepworth and Ben Nicholson, are featured in a documentary which offers an alternative history of the 20th century avant-garde as well as a vivid portrayal of the history and landscapes of Cornwall itself.

A little armchair travel and creating time... these videos by Paul Dinning are rather lovely - a tour without the stress of leaving home.
