Magical Misty Tintagel
Original Contemporary Cornish Landscape Painting by Cornish Artist Diane Griffiths. Acrylic and enamel on Gerstaecker cotton canvas with painted sides, 50x50cm/20×20″ (2017)
I think everyone is enchanted with Tintagel and the legend of King Arthur, it’s a magical place with a magical legend. The landscape itself is really unique and exciting; with cliffs, caves, castles and waterfalls to name some of the features. It’s a place where you can let your imagination run wild, and that’s exactly what happened with this painting. I didn’t want to just paint what you see but what you feel in this location – wholly inspired by an impressionistic style, drenched with mist, mystery and suggestion.
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.
