Paintings from the Atlantic Ocean, Cornwall


The following 14  paintings were painted from dawn till dusk over a period of time spanning several months from May to July with each painting emerging after four or five days. The paintings were painted entirely on the coast of the Atlantic Ocean in all weathers, and the paintings were directly subject, immersed and active in the ocean.
