A 35x25cm palette knife oil painting on canvas painted en plein are whilst staying on a farm in rural Zennor, St Ives. The painting depicts a view of a single white cottage nestled in the cliff above the rough Cornish Sea. The unpredictable nature of working with thick paint and a palette knife was the perfect way to convey the movement of the waves. The contrast and relationship between the land and sea in this location was fascinating. The ragged, textural land was an interesting contrast to the quiet stillness of the setting; a handful of cars a day passed us by on the lane and all to be seen was a couple of farmhouses and the local pub. The task of capturing the textures of the land and sea whilst also conveying the stillness of the surroundings made for a captivating project. There was plenty to unpack in this irregular, beautiful landscape.
