Porthleven From Breageside, 2021

Oil and acrylic on canvas
50 x 60 cms
Framed size: tbc


This medium-sized painting shows Porthleven’s iconic clock tower, which stands guard over the harbour and out to sea, viewed from across the bay amidst a jumble of fisherman’s cottages. The sea is a gorgeously moody blue-red, empty of boats, but the hills behind the tower glow in sunshine yellow, with the disappearing headland to the right of the painting bursting into dappled green.

This is early spring: the threat of winter storms which yearly batter the indefatigable tower have passed and the tower still stands, ready to preside over another brilliant Cornish summer to come.
