Alone on Mullion quay.

With this painting I wanted to convey the contrast between the dark brooding cliffs, and the massive granite quay of Mullion harbour (Cornwall). I hope the figure helps to show the scale and adds an element of vulnerability. This is a wild and windy coast and the massive quay often needs extensive repairs after the winter storms. Painted from my sketch. Oil on board 14” x 10”.

Re: Alone on Mullion quay.

I really like the shape, texture and color of the purple-grey rocks, works in nice harmony with the warm green grasses and cool green water. yes, the figure gives it a nice sense of scale.

Re: Alone on Mullion quay.

Well done here! You've achieved your goal of the massiveness of this outcropping. Lovely color all-round!
