I have available an extra special sunrise painting. It is available to buy from my studio/gallery in Perranuthnoe. This is one of my favourite paintings of one of my favourite places, it is Kennack Sands on the Lizard Peninsular in South West Cornwall.
I love the sunrise and the way the early morning light is radiating across the sea and sky. I love the depth and softness of the headlands fading back towards the horizon. For me this captures some special memories spent with my brother Jamie. On the early morning dawn patrol icy wetsuits are rewarded by breathtaking scenery and an uncrowded watery playground.
Which beach we would end up at would depend on the wind direction and the size of the swell. There are so many variables when trying to find the best surf on any given day. It almost becomes a science! Getting to know the local beaches and the secret spots takes time. To know when and where to be to score the best ride becomes an art in itself. I love to celebrate these different beaches which I have grown to love over the years. The search for the perfect wave has certainly yielded some treasures.
Paintings like this of the sunrise remind me of special moments in my life. Away from the crowds and hustle and bustle of the daily routine there is time to breath it all in and connect.
