Autumn Equinox Port Gaverne 2017

Written by

Autumn Equinox Port Gaverne 2017.

Oil on canvas. 60 x 60 cms.

£750.00

This is a painting of the view from the hill behind my studio overlooking Port Gaverne in North Cornwall. I started the painting on the day of the Autumn Equinox 2017. This also coincided with Cornwall being hit by the tail end of Hurricane Ophelia. At midday the sky turned yellow and the sun became a vermillion orb. It created a very surreal atmosphere which I have tried to capture in this painting. I was inspired by the heightened colour, the cyclonic gales and the menacing cloud formations. Sombre but very beautiful.

Cot Valley and the Brisons 2016

Written by

COT VALLEY AND THE BRISONS

Cot Valley and the Brisons, 2016. Oil on Canvas. Framed. 140 x 110 cms. £2750.00. The large, smooth boulders which populate the beaches of Porth Nanven Cove have led to its being referred to by some as ‘Dinosaur Egg Beach’. The black boulders were used to line the vaults of the Bank of England. Cape Cornwall has an ancient and elemental atmosphere about it which is especially encapsulated by Cot Valley and the magnetic beach at Nanven which lies at its mouth. Celtic settlements, stone circles and quoits abound along with the abandoned tin mines which draw me back to explore and interpret the power of nature, especially where the land meets the sea. In this painting I was inspired by the particular way in which the waves broke over the egg shaped rocks and the dramatic but smooth and sensuous emotion that that meeting provoked in me. I spent some time camping near Zennor and made many 'plein air' studies on the spot encapsulating the varied moods that the sea, the land and the weather created. My spiritual interaction with them guided the interaction of - oil paint, linseed oil and paste, turpentine, coarse brushes, squeegies, sand, seaweed and all the elements, to create images which I then worked with in my studio in Port Gaverne, to produce this painting 'Cot Valley and the Brisons'

Port Gaverne Tractor. Oil on canvas. 78 x 78 cms.

Port Gaverne Tractor is used to tow the boats into and from the sea at all tides. It is parked overlooking Port Gaverne bay. I set up the canvas in the undergrowth behind the tractor, with      a view of the Fish Cellars and my cottage and studio beyond. That’s my chimney on the left.   Early summer. ‘Padstows Pride’ flowers in full bloom. The tractor has a very distinct personality. The ‘Guardian Angel’ of Port Gaverne.

Geevor Tin Sand
Geevor Tin Sand

Geevor Tin Sand 2. Oil on board. 90 x 60 cms.

Red sand at Geevor Tin Mine, Penwith Cornwall. The mine penetrating the  rock, the sea weighing down upon it and the metal ores staining the sand. The power of the sea and the land. A sense of the perils facing the tin miners. Abstract/Expressionist . Broad brushstrokes. Raw Sienna. Burnt Sienna. Turquoise.

 Delabole Slate 2. Oil on canvas.. 60 x 75 cms.

 

Painted on the coast near Delabole , Cornwall, famed for its slate quarry. The jagged outcrops of slate and its underlying strata meet the turbulent turquoise sea. This is the view from the end of the road which was cut through the rock to enable the slate from Delabole to be transported, on horse and cart, to ships moored in Port Gaverne, which then delivered the slate internationally. Deep dark slate. Emerald sea. Bright Cornish light.
