'Two's Company' was inspired by a visit to St Ives, Cornwall- Those who have visited will recognise it from the 3 arches in the sea wall.

I limited my palette to just three colours: Prussian Blue, Alizarin Crimson and Naples Yellow for the main body of the piece, keen to explore the harmonious secondary and tertiary colours that could be created using just one red, one blue and one yellow. Towards the end I introduced Cerulean Blue into the sky and boats for a bit of contrast, I also couldn't resist the urge to make the bouys on the boats a lovely vibrant orange!

I have been influenced by the work of 'Richard Tuff' who uses gentle and harmonious tones, often disregarding the natural order of things and using strong, rich colours with many subtle changes of light and tone.

For anyone who has memories of St Ives I hope it takes you there- hopping from sand bank to sand bank between the boats to avoid puddles of sea water, searching for sea glass amongst the pebbles, watching kids run in and out of the arches, wondering through the cobbled backstreets and hiding your Cornish pasty from the ever vigilant seagulls!
