Surf and Turf

Oil on Board, 9 x 16 inches

Lovely jagged cliff shape here at Mawgan Porth, set against the late afternoon sky with gorgeous reflections in the wet sand was the inspiration for this one. I opted for a panoramic shape for the composition so as to concentrate the eye on the cliff and piercing yellow sky in the lower portion of it.

All done with four colours, there was a surprising amount of colour - I loved the Viridian in the crashing breakers and the resulting white surf - just perfect! 


  1. Fantastic piece, can I ask which four colours were used...?

  2. Thank you Black Rocks! I used my usual colours - Cad Yellow Light, Permanent Rose, Cobalt Blue and Titanium White, with a tiny touch of Viridian snuck in for the waves.
