I took this when I visited Stratford-upon-Avon; it’s the Church of the Holy Trinty where William Shakespeare is buried. It is a beautiful Church in a beautiful area
I took this on Holiday in Italy along the coast. I have read up on lost lands and submerged forests and I find the whole thing fascinating (and magical). I’ve looked up pictures taken in places like Ynyslas and Borth in Wales but had never noticed anything myself when I had been near the coast (maybe because I mainly go to pebble beaches, would you find them there(?))… I was quite excited when I saw this… It’s the simple things in life
I love the coast and often look up images of the British coastline.
On trips to Ireland I used to wander the tops of the cliffs near my grandparents house in Mayo and wander the Quay in Kilmore in Wexford. Both places are so peaceful and sometimes quite haunting.
I was thinking about taking a trip to Cornwall when I started doodling… this is what I ended up with. I was also listening to Roaming by Ruth Notman quite a lot around this time.
I never did go to Cornwall…
I drew this about 8 or 9 years ago, I didn’t know where the drawing was going when I started it so I put it aside for a couple of days. I had a bit of a clear out and found an old calendar which I got in a limited edition Romeo & Juliet video gift set (I had received for a birthday); I played the song from the film by Des’ree and finished it later that day with Romeo & Juliet on my mind
