Red Sky Over Pentire



Pentire Cornish Art


Pentire Cornish Art

Based on Original Contemporary Cornish Pentire Sunset Landscape Painting by Cornish Artist Diane Griffiths.

After a relaxing walk along Pentire the sun disappeared behind the clouds and I was a little disappointed that we weren’t going to see the sun set below the horizon. However my disappointment was premature – the clouds lit up with reds, oranges and yellows, I wasn’t the only one getting my camera out to take a photo!

After sharing my photo I had a request to paint this beautiful sky, which at first I was a little apprehensive about – I usually paint with photographs as reference – but it was such a stunning sky I wasn’t sure I would do it justice.

However once I started I found that it was really enjoyable to paint – mixing up the dark and bright colours to build up the contrast, I was really pleased with the final result, particularly how the reds flow across the sky.

Here’s to more Cornish sunsets!
