The Fern Pit Cafe
Original Contemporary Cornish Landscape Painting by Cornish Artist Diane Griffiths.
Acrylic and enamel on Gerstaecker cotton canvas with painted sides, 60x60cm/24×24″ (2017)
The Fern Pit Cafe is a very special location, uniquely located on West Pentire overlooking The Gannel and Crantock beach. It has amazing gardens and outdoor seating area. This painting was inspired on a sunny evening after a very wet day, you can still see the rain clouds looming but the sun is bouncing off the cafe and lighting up the countryside. It’s an unassuming entrance but hidden around the back is a stunning location for refreshment.
I use Gerstaecker Stretched Canvases 100% cotton; 380gsm, with no side tacking and are primed with a semi-absorbent universal primer.
Daler Rowney Acrylic System 3 original acrylic paint are the acrylics of my choice; I use a mixture of acrylic and enamel paints in my artwork.
