Last summer we spent a lovely week in Port Isaac in the cosiest fishing cottage we could find. It charmed us with it’s rickety beams, nautical decor and vast sounds and sights of the sea. We took great pleasure in exploring the village or simply winding time away at the house with a book or sketch pad. I became fixated on the different types of boats you could find in the bay and started drawing them from observation then from memory for fun. I really liked simplifying the level of detail and capturing their form in pencil. The other day, I found the pencil drawings and recreated them digitally so I could add more depth and personality using a range of textured brushes in full colour.
