Welcome to the blog of Melanie McDonald ! I'm a professional artist, my life is divided between my home in Newquay, Cornwall and my renovation project - an 18th Century farm - in North Brittany, France. My inspiration comes from the beautiful beaches, skies and seas of Cornwall, Brittany and Scotland. This is where I share my paintings and photographs, I hope it inspires you.

New Paintings of Rock and The Camel Estuary in Cornwall

A week or so ago I wrote how my Pinterest board called 'Solitary Figures' had triggered a new group of paintings.  Well, here they are!  

This group of eight paintings were inspired by a little coastal village called Rock, in north Cornwall, UK.  Rock rests on the edge of the beautiful Camel Estuary, (one of the most striking areas in Cornwall to paint, in my opinion!).  Across the broad expanse of gorgeous light reflecting water, is the famous harbour town of Padstow nestled in the valley.  I think the paintings have a poetic quality, the romance of long walks alone with only your thoughts for company ... and a few gulls, of course!
