Fern Pit Painting

Buy Cornwall Art – Original Contemporary Cornish Petite Painting by Cornish Artist Diane Griffiths

A slightly dreamy and watery painting on canvas with a mix of pastel colours. It provides a contemporary impressionistic and atmospheric painting of the iconic Fern Pit buildings at the bottom of Pentire, on The Gannel in Newquay. During the tourist season it’s a great way to cross The Gannel to Crantock beach without having to walk inland to cross the bridge; either using the ferry or the Fern Pit bridge at low tide. The cliff towers above and light glistens off the water.

Work in Progress

The background is in place and I’ve outlined the buildings of the Fern Pit at the bottom of the Gannel. I used acrylic for the buildings themselves but you can see the thicker texture of oil has been used for the cliffs.

This is the fun part, I’m using acrylics like watercolour here as I play around with the colour and water to create the beautiful natural cliff of Pentire.

I’ve painted in the detail and again using acrylic like watercolour to add in some shadows around the buildings.

Now it’s time to stop and check what I need to do next to finish the painting. My favourite tool the reducing mirror helps me to do this without having to move from my desk!
