The Gardens by the Sea

20 x 16 inches/50 x 40 cms
Acrylic on block canvas
£375 Sold
This is one of the first subjects I painted in Cornwall and I have revisited it often. Beautiful sub-tropical gardens surround an Edwardian bandstand and a path leads down to a darker, mysterious, sunken area with shell grottoes, a lovely camellia tree, masses of ferns and a tunnel. This used to lead to the seafront but nowadays one walks overground, coming out near a tiny chapel that overlooks the wide expanse of Gyllyngvase beach and a spectacular ocean view.
