Photo by Sarah Brittain at Cornwall Contemporary.  Click on the image for a larger picture and resume.  One of my most recent stones paintings is now on show at Cornwall Contemporary Gallery in Penzance.  ‘Beach Stones’, 80x80cm, mixed media on canvas.  Its the result of having made scores of en plein air paintings on paper in west Cornwall over the spring and summer.  I wanted to maintain the energy and mark making variety that I had achieved at a smaller scale on paper.  Also the strong diagonal in this composition harks back to those paintings too.
