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.

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 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.

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.”
