Raging Storm At Botallack

Hi everybody

Today I returned to a favourite subject. I’ve painted this abandoned mine three times now, and each time I find another way to portray it. The heritage of Cornwall is summed up in these iconic reminders of Cornwalls past and I’m fascinated by them. This is called ‘Raging Storm At Botallack’ and I painted it with my usual watercolour in a portrait composition to try and emphasise the scale of the cliffs and the isolation of the mine (Crowns Mine by the way). Hope you enjoy looking at it. I’ll be listing this for sale on my ‘Paintings For Sale’ page, along with a few other new additions.

Happy painting

Pete
