Magical Thatcher Rock
Near to my home on the South Devon coast is one of my favourite coastal walks which leads down to the majestic and magical Thatcher Rock. Recently I made a video of this walk called “Sketching at Thatcher Rock” which you can see on my YouTube channel - Galina Z artist. That walk was the inspiration for this painting.
Legend has it that a mad monk lived on the rock. He would live on a diet of fish and seagulls and had to rely on the rain water from the rock pools in order to survive. There were special boat trips arranged to see him and people would throw gifts to him on the rock.
Some locals also create children’s bedtime stories where Thatcher Rock is the famous Neverland where Peter Pan lives.
From the right side of the rock there is a small outcrop that looks like a Thatcher working on the roof of a Devon Cottage and thus the name Thatcher Rock was born.
The painting is mixed media on board with a resin finish which produces a crystal-clear, glass-like finish that enhances and protects the artwork.
Comes complete in a white frame as shown.
