In Poole Harbour

Poole has a very large harbour, within which nestles the spiritual home of Scouting. Brownsea Island - along with a number of smaller islands - not to mention the marinas, ferry ports and cargo depots that make up the functional port.


Carnations are pretty, inexpensive, and rather difficult to paint! I've had a go in several media in the past, but rarely been happy with the results. Oddly, I don't think I have tried acrylics before.

It's been a good year for the cherries. This lot came from Kent, via our village shop.
