In 1910, Frances Hodgkins still struggling between teaching classes and finding time to do her own work. She wrote to her mother from Concarneau, describing the late autumn scene: 'I go for walks by the sad sea walls – when it is too dark to paint – They are never sad for me I love them so & the gulls

& the big sky overhead. Its grey moments are too big to allow for sadness really.'
