The Botallach Tin Mines

Perched on the cliff edge near St. Agnes, the dramatic ruins of the structures of the old tin mines cling to the rugged rocks and wild seas of Cornwall’s north coast.

This is such a spectacular location that I felt I had to create a painting that captured the true spirit of the place. The crashing waves against the rugged rocks create such a vivid and dramatic scene for a painting. The large format canvas (120cm x 100cm) provided the platform to create a strong and breathtaking painting emphasising the incredible force of nature.
