Inspiration behind this print:-
The sky over St Ives can look surreal so you may not believe this painting!
The area has been a magnet for artists for hundreds of years. If I hadn't seen the sky with my own eyes, I wouldn't believe the colours. The heaviness and deep blue of the clouds on this particular day made the sand shine brightly. The sea a shade of aqua.
Amused to see a couple busying themselves with their picnic. Visitors determined to eat before the heavens opened. Adamant to get their money's worth of holiday despite the weather!
