Bedruthan Steps, also known as the Giant's Steps, are on the north Cornwall coast south of Padstow. The inspiration for this painting was the amazing evening light and the colours of the sea and beach. The pinks in the foreground were an added bonus.
A number of people had braved the steps down to the beach and I would recommend visitors to make the same effort; it is well worth it.
