Little Fistral evening surf


Little Fistral which lies let to the Newquay Headland at the North end of Fistral beach is a much loved spot by local surfers and enjoys some quite sublime waves. This painting in pastels over watercolour on watercolour paper is of the early evening surf earlier on this year.
I love the combinations of warm and cool colours which so often can make a painting sing.

This painting is available for sale, Double Mounted with a Hidden mount behind to prevent pastel dust marking the main mount.

£125 including UK delivery
