This acrylic on canvas painting shows the UNESCO World Heritage harbour of Charlestown in Cornwall, South West England. My studio and gallery is based in the village so this is a place where I spend a lot of my time. Charlestown has been used as a film and television set in many productions, including Alice in Wonderland, Apocolypto, and Doctor Who. For the last few years it has also been the home port for a fleet of tall ships.
This painting shows the main harbour and the little round harbourmasters hut which is now available to rent as an upmarket beach hut.
Cornwall has very little light pollution and is the perfect place for stargazing, which inspired this style of work.
