ALONG THE COAST III


Some time ago I did a smaller study of this scene which turned out okay so I felt it was time to do a larger version. Still the finished work is not that large - only 12" x 9 " but is big enough I feel to more easily capture my thoughts and emotions that I have for the coast and for the sea. Growing up as a boy in Bude on the North coast of Cornwall in the UK, I spent many an hour beach combing, watching birds and climbing the cliffs around the harbour, so I suppose this painting is a reminder of that time. Oil on canvas, 12" x 9" (30cm x 20cm).

That is a beautiful spot to reminisce over and a great painting for the rest of us to marvel at.

Thanks for that Vernon, like so many romantics, I do love places like this.

Me too John, and my wish is to get to do a lot more paintings like this. Have to visit Maine again soon!
