GYLLYNGVASE BEACH GREETINGS CARD...SOON...
By Jules, Sep 27 2020 05:01PM
Gylly is a beach to hang out with friends, paddle board on the calmer waters of Falmouth bay, build sandcastles and explore the rockpools with little ones...special memories are made here.
But it's also a place to be alone, to contemplate life's ups and downs. A place to be think, and find perspective when life throws up a challenge.
I wanted this painting to reflect all of these moments. A cloudy sky and subdued palette but with the blue of the sea offering optimism that the sun will peak through at any moment.
The headlands and sand are flat colour. This visually balances and enhances the textural sea and realistic sky. Pendennis castle and St Anthony's lighthouse are simple silhouette and minimal shape.
The original painting is 100cms x 100cms and was shown for some time in the lounge of the Falmouth Hotel. It has now sold.
This being a popular piece as a postcard, I have decided to have greetings cards professionally printed and will be shortly be available to buy online and from selected stockists. I will give more details soon...
