Fistral During Low Tide
Original Contemporary Cornish Landscape Painting by Cornish Artist Diane Griffiths.
Acrylic and enamel on canvas with painted sides, 61x50cm/24×20″ (2017).
Living so close to Fistral means that I spend a lot of time walking up and down this beach. I especially love the way the sun splashes over the headland and sand dunes as it sets, casting the whole landscape in colour with red and orange highlights dancing across the horizon. When the tide goes out it can feel like you have the whole beach to yourself, I was keen to demonstrate this space here.
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.
