Autumn Equinox Port Gaverne 2017

Written by

Autumn Equinox Port Gaverne 2017.

Oil on canvas. 60 x 60 cms.


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, 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'

Artists Statement

Written by

Andrew Palmer. Artists Statement. April 2012.


“I am very influenced by the sea and have always been fascinated by its power

and ever changing moods.

I immerse myself in the dramatic land and seascapes that surround me in

Cornwall and initially make studies, in oil on canvas or board, painting quickly

using bold and vigorous brushstrokes to express my subjective response to the


In the studio I work from these studies on larger paintings, which are often

more abstract and expressive, while still conveying the atmosphere and specific

sense of place of the original subject.”
