This is another new location for me & one I will definetly be revisiting. The sheer Granite cliffs & Lichen covered cliff top boulders in this whole stretch of coast are just amazing.
After a 3.30am start time & a long drive to reach the location I then had an hours walk to reach some of the areas I thought could have potential. I started walking at 4.30am, it was so quiet & peaceful as the sun slowly rose, with just the dawn chorus & Foxes & Badgers to keep my company along the way. I reached my area of interest & literally didn’t know where to look as there were so many areas that grabbed but for this Painting I chose this view looking towards Zawn Trevilley (the meaning of Zawn is “A deep and narrow sea-inlet in the British Isles, especially Cornwall and the south-west, cut by erosion into sea-cliffs, and with steep or vertical side-walls”)
Hopefully I’ve been able to capture some its beauty & majesty, but it turned out to be one of the most time consuming, complex Paintings I’ve undertaken. I’m going to be entering this Original into the tough selection process for The Royal Society of Marine Artists Exhibition in London in October 2019, its a two stage process with the first round selection being made in July.
This is a new size for me, the image dimensions are 450mm x 590mm.
I haven’t decided on the framing for this Original yet as it may be more practical, if its accepted, to take to London unglazed, which will mean a new framing approach for me.
The Original is potentially for sale but only if a) its not accepted for the Exhibition & b) if it makes the exhibition & doesn’t sell, so it can be reserved until that decision is known.
