Sea and rocks on the North Cornish coast near Sennen.

"Rocks at Sennen", near Sennen Cove, Cornwall.

There's something impressive about looking at the forces of nature... firstly, those that created the rocks and secondly, the sea, along with the wind etc trying to break them down.

This oil painting shows a tiny section of the north Cornwall coast between Sennen Cove and Land's End, that's exposed daily to all that the Atlantic ocean can throw at it. On the day, the sea had nothing more than a large swell and almost at high tide, but created some interesting loose shapes which contrasted with the sharper shapes of the rocks.
