'Devon Sky Magenta'

'Devon Sky Magenta' 
oil on deep-edge canvas, 30 x 48 inches/76 x 121 cm


Custom canvas from TP Timber Stretchers, St Just.
Painted by Yours Truly in St Ives.
Carried across the border by 3 Lanes Art Transportation, St Ives.
Produced in Cornwall for a home in Devon.

Although this commission is based on an earlier abstract work (by request) it has 'evolved into its own painting' because I found myself thinking of a recent visit to Horton Gower, Wales and remembering looking across the open, empty beach and Bristol Channel to the North Coast of Devon.

In situ at its new home.

Seascapes on board - square and tiny...

So many pieces included in this post - 3 or so weeks worth - all small and some that are quite dark, which is inappropriate really as we've been having fantastic summer weather here in St Ives!

I've been lucky to spend three consecutive days painting, punctuated by plenty of breaks in the garden making the most of glorious sunshine, in the midst of nature, enjoying summer smells, cloudless blue skies and birdsong.  It has been hot, hot, hot!

Most of the square paintings are, or soon will be displayed at Art Space Gallery, St Ives 
'Black Rocks Porthmeor' is exhibited at St Ives Society of Artists Mariners Gallery.
