Priest Cove Diptych have been painted from sketches Adele has taken on her many trips to Cornwall. Priests Cove is a spectacular part of the Cornish coastline and one Adele loves to paint in all weathers. Adele normally loves to start her works plein air, but with recent restrictions her numerous sketchbooks have come in to their own! These paintings have a purity about them, with a transparent soft muted palette, a delicate blue sky and gently rolling waves are offset against the stronger textured rocks and crevices . A striking pair of paintings on birch panels, framed in white birch wood. These paintings work well as a diptych but would also hang beautifully on their own.

Adele Riley, painter and illustrator, is available for sale online and in our art gallery at Wychwood Art. Adele Riley as a British-born artist living in Gloucestershire, I'm surrounded by some of the most natural and inspiring surroundings in the UK, well-placed to benefit from a huge variety of light, texture, and drama – perfect for what I do. I usually begin by sensing the subject, sometimes using a photo or a sketch to extract weather, light, horizons and shapes to commit the scene to canvas with a variety of media and paint. What I fear most is repetition, so I experiment a lot with media and colour, asking questions of the fresh and the new, trying things out (getting things wrong), but all the time learning and looking to improve. Having studied Illustration at Epsom School of Art, I have always continued to learn and develop from my experiences and travels. Not having a formal arts grounding I found to be a positive thing, as I could appreciate painting by it’s many disciplines. I learned more by challenging the rules of fine art, as well as applying them. It helped drive my enthusiasm until I arrived at a style of painting that represents me as an artist. In addition to painting, I teach art to adults and children both through my business based in Gloucester, and in surrounding local schools. My paintings are for sale, price on application, and all are available as a print To discuss any of Adele Riley's original paintings for sale please call 07799535765 or email
