Listening to a favourite song last autumn (‘Turn of the century’ from the album ‘Going for the One’ by Yes) prompted me to do this little painting.
I wanted to revisit my wife and I’s two years living and painting in Cornwall. It always has a special place in my heart, especially Port Issac where we lived pre Doc Martin days, with the houses on the cliffs overlooking the sea. So quiet and tranquill.
