This is one of my most distinctive seascapes and was painted in watercolour with the addition of some sand from the beach. The original painting was 27 ¼ inches tall x 9 ¾ inches wide, and the entire work was completed during the course of one (very long!) day on St Agnes
This seascape was painted in June 2006. If you visit St Agnes, make sure to check out the pebble 'installations' on the west side of the island between Periglis and Santa Warna's Cove. The granite stones used to construct them are beautiful and very varied in colour and texture. People have made remarkably stable towers and other structures using them. This particular tower was standing on its own on the shoreline below the campsite and was over a metre tall. The rock at the base was covered at high tide but it seemed very strong and able to withstand the sea.
