Right now, they are with the framer so they are not available to view just yet. However, if you want to purchase ahead of the Exhibition, and save 10% on the price (they range from £500 to £750), contact me to arrange a private viewing ahead of handing day on 24 March.
The view of the Cottage Hotel, from Bantham
This image is taken from Bantham, looking towards Hope Cove. High on the cliff, you can just about make out the Cottage Hotel, currently under major redevelopment and refurbishment.
This view, taken from the beach (and one of the hotel’s own photos) shows it in more detail.
The Cottage Hotel is one of my favourite destinations. Whether it’s for Sunday lunch – like yesterday – or for a romantic getaway where Anne and I can relax and enjoy the wonderful sunsets – we are regular visitors.
We love the old-fashioned family atmosphere where customer service is the top priority. And, of course, the dessert trolley.
More about Longstone
Back to my painting! Again, I am using oil paints.
In the middle distance, Longstone, this magnificent rock does look as if it’s braced against the roaring sea.
And, notice a streak of orange: the Hope Cove Rib at full tilt on a mission of mercy in those foul conditions.
Supporting Hope Cove Lifeboat
I am keen to support local charities and good causes generally. To this end, there is a fine art greetings card which supports the Hope Cove Lifeboat.
Watch out for these and buy them!
They are on sale at the Cottage Hotel, and also at events organsied by the charity.
