The beach and sea shoreline

My last few paintings have been all about the beach.

I have finally got to swim in the sea last year in Teignmouth. Brisk but refreshing. “It’s fine once you’re in. You just need to keep swimming to keep warm” is what I said to my partner.

I had a good May this year, sales wise with some of my beach paintings selling. This made me reflect on what one collector said to me. She wanted to buy one of my paintings to remind her of the holiday that they were going to miss out on this year. So much has changed.

However my love of the ocean, waves and coastline of Devon and Cornwall has not. They still provide the inspiration for all that I paint.

‘Maenporth Beach’ is one of my current paintings inspired a short stay there this autumn. It is a quiet secluded cove which is one of the most photogenic in Cornwall.

Maenporth Beach is a beautiful sandy cove, approximately 2 miles from Falmouth town centre, perfect for sun bathing, rockpooling fishing and boating. Maenporth Beach offers great views across Falmouth Bay towards Pendennis Castle and some superb coastal walking opportunities onwards towards the Helford river area
