St Michael’s Mount Painting
Buy Original Art – Penzance Seascape Painting
By Cornish Artist Diane Griffiths
St Michael’s Mount is such a special place; the ancient castle sits on a small tidal island in Mount’s Bay, West Cornwall. The island is linked to the town of Marazion via a man-made cobbled causeway, it’s easy to spend all day watching the tide go in and out. This view was taken from further around the bay from the historic port Penzance.
The sea is saturated with colour; deep blue hues gush around you and across the bay. The castle sits majestically on the island and as the clouds tumble in the wind, the light and shadow across the horizon are seen in glances and stolen moments – constantly changing and yet bestowing a sense of grace and timeless history captured uniquely in this view.
