A little experiment with Lands End!

Just an experiment with colour and shapes, an acrylic painting on gesso panel 440 x 560mm A loose painting inspired by a wonderful photo by Liam Alford Photography on Instagram. This image is of Lands End in Cornwall, I particularly like the stone cold and neon cheap light in this picture typical of cloudy coastal scenes at this time of year. Oh I also have a little art assistant to! Stanley Brown our new Tabby!

Kynance Cove.

A painting of Kynance Cove from a few days ago. We had walked from the Lizard Village to Housel Cove, then on past the Lizard Point to Kynance. The day had been very sunny but quite cold for this time of year, but once here we witnessed a massive hailstorm, we had a mug of tea and waited out the storm. Most people present left immediately and after half an hour the sun came out and this scene was captured on my Huawei phone.

Kynance Cove Revisited.

A wonderful day of walking around the amazing Lizard Peninsula. A pleasurable walk from the Lizard carpark down to Housel Cove, then along the South West Coast Path via Lizard Point to Kynance Cove. Arriving at Kynance we were assaulted by a massive hailstorm which lasted over half an hour. Once the blue sky finally arrived you could see the storm on the horizon like an atomic bomb blast! Whilst the storm was overhead most people had left the beach, when the sun returned we had the beach to ourselves a rarity here that’s for sure. Here I always marvel at the coast’s clear turquoise water and rugged outcrops of granite stone. We returned back along the coast path spotting bobbing seals and paddle boarders making the most of the warm sunshine, then to Housel and finally the carpark. More inspiration here for future paintings! Al
