The original of this seascape painting was created in watercolour with some pastel and was the same size as the large print we offer (about twenty seven inches tall by nine and a half inches wide). I painted this seascape on mornings in October 2010, on the coast path to the south of Pelistry. The high tide has covered the sand bar linking Tolls Island to the main island of St Marys and in the far distance is St Martins. This painting was destined to be included in my second solo Exhibition "Islands of Sun and Ice" at the Birmingham Botanical Gardens in Edgbaston in October 2011. However, a gentleman customer of mine particularly wanted a Pelistry painting so it became his.
Location: Pelistry, St Marys, Isles of Scilly
