Worked on three views of St Ives based around Smeaton’s Pier. The first, using a triptych of canvases, is looking back down the pier towards The Wharf. Quite pleased with the colour and texture in the composition.
For the second view I thought to use a long series of five small square canvases to emphasise the length of the pier itself.
The third work was a long thin landscape canvas, again of Smeaton’s pier, a very similar view to the 5-canvas painting. I was pleased with the lighting on the house roofs and parts of the pier, suggesting the low evening sun, and the way the boats hung still in the water.
