If you aren’t already aware from some of my previous posts, Cornwall is one of my favourite places in the world. After I got back from holiday I just had to try to put some of the brilliant colours and shapes down on paper. The blues in particular you just don’t see often in the UK.
This is my impression of one of the most memorable views of my holiday. It was a pretty rainy week for our Cornish holiday this year but we were lucky enough to get a couple of lovely days and on one of them we took a walk over the cliff tops to Wheal Coates. We then walked back along the beach and finished with a pint over a view of the sea. This image is my interpretation of the view back up towards Chapel Porth and Wheal Coates up on the cliff.
The patterns made by the crowded clusters of glistening mussels on the rocks fascinate me. I’m very pleased with how this pattern transfers to paper. I think I may play around with this some more in some abstract pieces.
I will be selling the original of this painting in addition to limited edition giclee prints in 2 sizes. Please see my Etsy Shop for more details.
The original was created using Windsor & Newton Artists Watercolours and gouache on 14″x10″ Arches Hot Pressed (Smooth texture) watercolour paper.
For those of you who have already had a look at my Etsy shop, please note that as I have now had time to do some more homework I have reduced the postage costs for most of the products in my shop.
