Drawing Coverack Harbour

On a Thursday morning we drove down to Coverack to find the harbour almost deserted. I’ve never known the place to be so quiet, with a few fishermen finishing up after a very early start and just a handful of visitors mostly doing other things.

It was a great opportunity to do some drawing, so I spent a while working on two A3 sized sketches in a sort of panoramic sweep of the harbour, below.

It was then time to move on and across to the north coast for a lunch at a rather nice pub in Zennor – but really I could have stayed all day just drawing.

Later, after scanning, I put these two sketches together to form the basis of a larger panoramic drawing. Here is the result so far…
