This painting was conceived and sketched at Harlyn Bay in Cornwall, the final painting completed in the studio.
As I looked out to sea the sun was behind me , bringing out all of the colours in sky , sea and sand. It was one of those moments when you know that you are experiencing something special.
The paint was just touched to the canvas and put into a soft focus by gentle diagonal brush strokes giving lots of movement .
I am particularly happy with the shimmering harmonies of violets, oranges, blues and turquoise.
