On the water
After that though it was smooth sailing. We had a lovely day out on the water, looking at the wildlife and all the stunning scenery, including a blowhole that was working spectacularly. We also had a good catch up…. Thanks Ffion for a lovely day of “inspiration“!
The painting below was directly inspired by the spectacle of one of Ramsey Island’s ‘blowholes’. which we often see on the boat. This phenomenon is caused by swell washing in to a hole in the rock and compressing the air inside it. At a certain point this compressed air explodes outwards causing a dramatic blast of vaporised seawater.
