I sit on the beach, the shifting wind and rain surround me. A few minutes later and the sun could break through proving how alive the Penwith coastline really is. Every given moment passes only once, colours are constantly evolving, but the relationship between the sea and the land is eternal. It is while directly witnessing this that I find my most honest and raw images. Each picture is finished on-site with no reworking in the studio. I almost exclusively use a white cotton bivouac for shelter, which cuts out the glare of the sun without tinting, whilst also minimising the effect of rain on my painting board. It is shown here at Porthmeor beach.
