The Old Post Office – Tintagel

Hi everybody

This is ‘The Old Post Office – Tintagel’ a watercolour on Arches CP paper. 1/2 imperial. As my next exhibition is taking place in Tintagel I wanted to paint a local landmark. The Old Tintagel Post Office is now under the patronage of the National Trust. The building is very old, dating from 1380 and was a Cornish Hall-House. It was used as a post office in Victorian times. The view shown here is not fully visible from this angle due to a large tree in the corner of the garden. I have used ‘artistic licence and moved the tree to the rear of the house. I’ve also had to use several photos from different angles go construct the left hand side of the building. Hope you like it.

Happy painting

Pete
