O3 Gallery – Porthleven from Institute Hill

In this second view of Porthleven, looking down Institute Hill, I was initially entranced by the soft blue and mauve shadows on the tall Institute building and the silvery granite stone walls of the lane running directly towards the pier in this ‘contre-jour’ … Continue reading

New work of Botallack, Cornwall

This is one of a group of paintings I’ve been working on of ‘The Crowns’ engine houses at Botallack in Cornwall. I love this highly vertiginous viewpoint of the remains.  Its a view that has led me to experiment with … Continue reading
