We asked Paul to share his inspiration for the painitng, here's what he had to say;
A little piece of fantasy. I saw some pictures from the Isle of Bara and it made me long to go to see it. From close to Godrevy lighthouse you can gaze towards St Ives. The water on a still day looks shallow at low tide and clear so clear. I thought about Hockney’s endless experiments to render swimming pool water in California. So an expanse of water painted with miles of rigger work over glaze upon glaze to of acrylic paint. A “happy painting” I hope.
