Ominous Porthmeor, 2022

Oil on canvas
150 x 125 cms
Framed size: 152 x 127 cms


A partner to Crystal Clear Porthmeor, this painting shows the same vista across the long sweep of Porthmeor beach, but instead of blithe sunshine, here it is overtaken with majestic stormclouds. The wet sand reflects this tumultuous sky, and the sea – the tide far out on the horizon – seems almost to have drawn back, bracing itself for the storm to come. The deep, inky indigo of the foreground is almost abstracted, the movement of wind and spray depicted as a burst of energy. This beautiful painting captures the grandeur and power of the landscape, one of the many faces of Cornwall.
