This seascape, in watercolour with pastel, sand and a real shell (!), was painted in the spring of 2007. The original painting was about the same size as the full size print we offer, approx nine and three quarter inches wide by twenty seven and three quarter inches tall .
Painting at low tide means you have to keep moving as the tide comes in. In addition, Porthloo beach changes regularly as the sand and rocks are moved about with the weather and tides. It is rarely the same after a storm. You can see Glandore on the skyline here and my wife commented that it was the first time I had painted the house not using emulsion!
Location: Porthloo beach, St Marys, Isles of Scilly
