Holywell Bay Cornwall Giclée Print
Seascape giclée archival print on fine art paper 70 cm x 100 cm
Holywell Bay Cornwall Giclée Print is based on an original oil painting in my wave series. It shows crashing ocean waves in many shades of green from emerald to the palest yellow green hue. The beaches of the South Devon coastline and Cornwall have inspired this painting.
Holywell Bay in Cornwall has a huge beach of golden sand backed by grass tufted dunes. It is a perfect example of the north coast’s wide open bays large enough for everyone to enjoy. Go body boarding in the water, storm watch in winter or stroll across the sands with the dog. In short it is an ideal place to just sit on the beach and read a good book; meanwhile the kids play in the stream or enjoy the waves.
At low tide it is possible to explore the fascinating grotto-like Holywell Cave with its calcium deposits. You can also see the wreck of an old Argentinian coaster just offshore at low tide.
There is ample room amongst the dunes, some of which rise up 60 feet, for a beach picnic and it’s a suitably romantic spot to watch the sun go down.
The National Trust owns and looks after Holywell and is able to care and conserve areas like this, thanks to their members, volunteers and donors. Car park free to National Trust members.

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.
