Paintings of Cornwall

Posted: August 9, 2010 in Art, Artists

In 1986 and 1987 I spent time in Cornwall and in one week I drove just over 2,000 miles, including the drive from Portsmouth and back, discovering the coast of Cornwall with my wife.

We would leave the hotel early in the morning and just drive off along the coast road and find incredibly beautiful bays which were completely deserted (in July!) and have them all to ourselves to enjoy.

Recently memories of that time have come back to me thanks to my friend Chris (@Artythings on Twitter) who introduced me to these two artists via his twitter page.

The first artist Chris led me to is Kurt Jackson, a British artist who is about 49 years old.  If you go to this page http://www.lemonstreetgallery.co.uk/kurtjacksonweb/Kurt-jackson-enesow.htm and then click on the image it brings up a slide show. Its amazing.

The second artist is Simon Andrew and again, these pictures are of Cornwall and they too are amazing http://www.badcocksgallery.co.uk/show.php?artistId=468&showId=107
