This painting is based on Ayrmer Cove, located near the town of Bigbury in Devon.
I really like the composition of this piece. It has a beautiful balance of light, interesting textural challenges and resonates an overall atmosphere that feels crisp, clear and fresh. As with all my paintings, the intention behind them is to still the mind and uplift the soul.
I'd like to thank my friend Alex Barker for supplying me with the original image. Having come down to Devon one weekend, he and I were talking about some painting locations that might be worth a visit, when out of the blue he produced this image on his phone! I was sold and began work the very next day.
