My friends, Richard and Anne Farr very kindly allowed me to paint this view of their garden overlooking Porthmellon, St Marys in August 2008. Porthmellon is a popular sandy beach which houses the gig sheds and sailing club. When I saw the dinghy with a rainbow sail, I thought it made a good focal point for the painting. In the middle distance you can see Newfort Island off Porthloo beach and Tresco on the horizon.
