Today I’m off to Land’s End to take part in a spectacular art installation and world record attempt to see how many plein air painters can paint in one place at one time. This Cornish world record attempt is organised by Newlyn School of Art and aims to fund the creation of a new stretch of Cornwall coast path between Sennen and Land’s End. I adore this raw corner of Cornwall and can’t wait to capture the wild Atlantic and craggy cliffs on my canvas.
All participants will stand an equal distance apart, and the back of their painting panels will be painted pink so that from an aerial perspective, they form a continuous dotted line when held above the participants heads; the denotation of a footpath on an OS Map. I am rather excited about being part of this momentous world record attempt in Cornwall and map installation, the end result will hopefully be quite something! Having been situated at my Art Shack at Treyarnon all summer, having the chance to paint a different stretch of coast is going to be really inspiring and I’m excited to be part of it.
I’m glad the sun is shining, it should be an awesome day!
