Seascape giclée archival print on fine art paper a white boarder of 4cm. Signed and numbered. Postage and packaging included.
Cligga Head is a coastal site with species rich maritime heathland and grassland. The cliffs and adjacent mine workings are of outstanding geological interest exposing greisened granite and rare minerals.
The site extends for about 2.5 km along the North Cornwall coast from Perranporth to Trevaunance Cove near St Agnes. The exposed north-west facing cliffs have a bevelled profile with steep slopes rising to 91 metres. Then a vertical cliff of 25 to 35 metre height. Most of the area is underlain by Devonian slates of the Ladock Beds. These are metamorphosed throughout the northern half of the site, due to the intrusions of the granite boss exposed at Cligga Head.
At low tide Perranporth beach and neighbouring Penhale sands join together to form one of the largest stretches of unbroken sand on the North Coast. At one end is Perranporth, the archetypal beach town with the high street backing on to the sand. Progressing towards Penhale Point an extensive network of sand dunes rise behind the beach. This is a Special Area of Conservation and also home to a buried church.
Most of Perranporth’s facilities and features are located towards the town end of the beach. There are rockpools, caves, a stream and Chapel Rock, with a small bathing pool on its seaward side. A little further along is the ‘Watering Hole’. A pub not just overlooking the beach, but actually right on the beach.
Despite its size Perranporth beach can become very busy with beach-goers concentrated near the town, particularly as the tide comes in. However, there will always be room further along the beach in front of the dunes.

I am a Teignmouth based artist and live close to the ocean and Dartmoor. This proximity to the South West Coast and the wild untamed landscape of the moor has influenced my recent work. Water is an ever-changing element that I find fascinating. In my oil paintings.
