In our new to us caravan that we have recently bought there was a large picture with a very boring photo of the sea in it. I have now replaced it with this illustration that I have just completed. Our caravan is sited on a lovely spot overlooking the sea at Red Wharf Bay Anglesey, so I was really excited when I found this old map of the Menia Straits and Anglesey. We often go up to South Stack to see the lighthouse and the sea birds, so I thought I must incorporate the lighthouse. The texture on the jug was taken from the photograph below which I took on the beach after a very bad storm. The starfish are called brittle star fish and they live in colonies of about 200 and are usually sub - tidal but the bad weather and high spring tide had brought them in.
