Last week I went on a wonderful trip to Cornwall to gather some inspiration for some new paintings.
I went to Watergate Bay to start with on a blustery day with bright sunshine and took some great photos of the large waves crashing onto the shoreline. Also intriguing to me were the clouds reflected back through the incoming tide.
Watergate Bay Cornwall is located on the north coast of Cornwall and is one of the premier surf spots in the country. With three miles of golden sand and a stunning view of the Atlantic Ocean, it is a popular destination for surfers and beach-goers alike. The beach is especially popular in the summer months when the swell is consistent and the waves are gentle. There are plenty of activities to enjoy in the area, from beach volleyball to kayaking too. If that’s not enough, Watergate Bay also has a great selection of restaurants and pubs overlooking the beach, making it the perfect spot to spend a lazy day with friends and family.
Watergate Bay provided me with inspiration for a painting simply titled “Watergate Bay Waves”
We stopped for something to eat at the cafe on the beach called “The Beach Hut” and had a great view out of the window of the beach.
As the day drew to a close we ended up in Newquay where the rolling waves were gradually submerging the beach.
Newquay provided me with inspiration for this painting “Fistral Beach Waves II
