The view over the bay, with summer anenomes and a calendular


In this painting I was hoping to capture looking through a window onto a Coastal bay. I love the sea and painting boats in harbours, having fun with the contrast between the colours, tones and shapes. This painting is 50x60cm and is  comes framed in a white St Ives frame.


A view over the bay, is one I dream of having one day.

Its a great pleasure to paint boats in Cornish harbour painting. I would love to go to Cornwall once a year and spend more time there. What’s not to love? the scenery, the coastline the pasties and the art galleries. I can’t wait to go again. I love to paint the fishing boats with the white Cornish cottages in the background.  This painting I combined a still life with a coastal scene.

One of the pictures at the top page of my commissions page is a painting of Sennen Cove in Cornwall I painted as a commission. The customers liked my seascape paintings they saw at my Open Studios. They holidayed in the same house overlooking Sennen Cove for many years so it was a very special view to them.  It was a joy to do as I love to paint the sea. Please think of me should you wish to have your favourite scene painted. Rather than spending ages searching the net, you can get a work of art that is perfect for you. You can read how to go about it in my blog , How to commission a work of art.
