Description

Tom Henderson Smith

One of the wonderful qualities of Cornwall that inspires me is the way the sea influences everything. For a painter this is especially true of that famous Cornish light that comes from its situation on a peninsula as if a giant mirror were nearly surrounding us.¬†Perhaps that’s one reason I feel so much at home here. Of course the sea itself provides endlessly interesting motifs as well: the beauty of secluded coves, harbours, beaches and dunes, the rhythm of the tides, the forms of traditional and other sea-going vessels and all the activity that goes on around them.

There is so much I want to paint around the sea and I’m grateful to RoAnMor for their encouragement to continue exploring such themes.
