Water, Water, Everywhere

Low Tide at Cancale, France

The coast of Brittany and Normandy is full of little jewels for the artist. There are craggy mountains, cliffs of pink granite, hills covered in gorse and heather, and always there is the turquoise water. The range of the tides is enormous and we often pass boats that have been grounded by the low tide. In many locations, the tide will recede by one hundred feet or more, leaving the lonely little boats, rocks encrusted with mussels and scenic views.
