Dark Sea, Rain – Original Painting
This is an original acrylic painting by David Raine, titled ‘Dark Sea, Rain’.
It depicts a coastal scene from Cape Cornwall, a unique headland in West Cornwall that was once a mining area and is now a habitat for many seabirds.
David is a Cornwall-based artist who is inspired by the sea and the shore. He creates various products, such as table lamps, mirrors, furniture and paintings, that capture the very essence of the shoreline.
When David he hitch-hiked to St Ives and bought a fisherman’s/painters smock, had half a pint in the Sloop Inn whilst looking out over the harbour, blinked into the midsummer sun glaring across the turquoise sea and fantasised that he was a painter. How easy dreams start!
At that time I sailed a 10.6’ dinghy on the Bristol Channel, now after all these years, I sail an 11’ foot dinghy on the Helford River estuary in Cornwall. Who cares if it’s only a smidgen of progress in sixty years?
This original acrylic painting has been created on a deep canvas with a pallet knife and brush giving lots of texture to the piece. The work is unframed, but is ready to hang.
Size: 50 x 4 x 40 cm (20 x 1.5 x 16 inches)
