Newquay

Newquay

Acrylic and Ink on Paper, 21 x 30 cm, July/August 2016

This is a view of the cliffs, bay and ocean in Newquay, Cornwall done from Room 131 of the Best Western Bristol Hotel, Tolcarne Bay. Newquay is the surf capital of England and is a beautiful town perched along stunning cliff tops and coastline. This picture was done over two days by first sketching out the details in Ink and then adding thinned Acrylic Paint to add colour, slowly building it up in layers. After this I re-defined the details in places with Ink to give it more definition and depth. I like to come back to pictures after they have dried to give the colours a chance to settle and see which parts have worked or need changing. This is a combination of media I like to use when working from life and I like the effect that it can give.
