Twitter Art Exhibit 17

I am very happy to support Twitter Art Exhibit and to donate this postcard titled ‘Holywell Bay‘ for this year’s #TAE exhibition and sale in support of the charity Molly Olly’s Wishes.

All funds raised from the sale of donated cards will go to the charity to help children with life threatening or terminal illnesses.  The opening night is 1 April 2017 (6-9pm) at the ArtsHouse in Stratford upon Avon, with the sale from 1-19 April.


This painting, another of my coastal scenes of the rugged north Cornish coast at Holywell Bay, close to Newquay.  I remember walking here on a windy summer’s day with a good swell pushing the rising tide up the beach and forming amazing turquoise waves. I have painted this in acrylics using brushwork in the sky and sea and palette knife for the rocks.
