Maggie LaPorte Banks . A cuppa at the Cape. Acrylic on canvas, with sand and carborundum added. H. 76 cm x W. 76cm. X W. 2 cm. unframed.
The inspiration for this work was a journey by boat along the Pendeen coast looking at Cape Cornwall from the sea. I spent over a dozen happy holidays staying at Cape Cornwall at Brisons Veor overlooking the sea, as artist in residence. The paynes grey is a colour in my mind of the mist on the sea most mornings. Acrylic on canvas, with sand and carborundum added. Please note that insitu images are purely an indication of how a piece may look.

Maggie LaPorte Banks artist comments: My Art is routed in landscape, influenced by childhood memories of Donegal, by Lough Swilly, surrounded by dark mountains. I spent ten years living near to the Brecons Beacons and painting using a tent as a studio in all seasons. For over thirteen years I was an artist in residence in a cottage on the end of Cape Cornwall overlooking the Brisons at different times of the year. Therefore, I have a vast amount of passion for the skies, sea and mountains which I love to involve within my paintings. My recent works have been developed from these roots and are becoming much more abstract, focusing on ‘the essence of place’ through the colours I use and emotions I have created. I work mainly in oils, acrylic and mixed media, sometimes adding unique materials such as sand, carborundum, iron fillings and many other products I feel the work dictates.
