Flip Flop Fistral
Original Contemporary Cornish Landscape Painting by Cornish Artist Diane Griffiths.
Acrylic and enamel on Gerstaecker cotton canvas with painted sides, 55x46cm/21.5×18″ (2017).
Havaianas built a three-metre giant flip flop shower on Fistral beach, it’s quite an icon this summer and I had to capture it in at least one of my paintings. It’s high tide and the sea is crashing towards the shoreline with the Headland Hotel standing proud on Towan.
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.
